1. Barcelona: Flamenco & Tapas in El Born
Just minutes away from the noise of Las Ramblas and the crowded coastline of Barceloneta, an expert local guide will take you through the trendiest district in Barcelona, El Born, where you will be able to admire the greatness of the Cathedral (icon of Catalan gothic architecture), and will learn about Catalonia’s recent past at Centre Cultural del Born, home also to the best conserved archaeological site in the city. Discover the Spanish Gastronomy tasting Basque Pintxos and the best Seafood tapas from the mediterranean. We will visit 2 bars and in each bar we will taste some tapas and pintxos. Pintxos (which means "toothpicks" or "small skewers", depending on who you ask) are a Basque culinary tradition that has extended to Barcelona and is the art of making delicatessen small bites which can become the sole component of a wonderful dinner. Then continue to the former fishermen’s village of Barceloneta, where you will taste delicious mediterranean seafood tapas like mussels, shrimp croquettes, octopus and more. After visiting the Born District passing through Santa Maria del Mar and Passeig Colon, you will enjoy an intimate flamenco show surrounded by the Baroque atmosphere of Dalmases Palace, a hidden treasure from the 17th Century and once the meeting place of an aristocratic society of scholars.
