About the EL Born Food Tour

 

In the words of Catalan writer Joan Perucho: “Looking at the cuisine of the past, we often learn much about social history as well as politics.” This is nowhere as apt as in the neighborhood of El Born. These eclectic streets, with their hidden alleyways, charming squares, museums and art galleries, were once home to Barcelona´s aristocracy and the epicentre of trade in the city. They are now home to a thriving creative community.

As you wander the neighborhood be prepared for surprises, as you discover trendy tastes vying with ancient ones and learn about the sometimes quirky history of the area; a history that has left its mark on everything from the architecture and the place names to the very bites you are about to discover. In El Born you will taste the history of the city through the different cuisines of the cultures who have left their mark here, while still remaining true to its Catalan character.
