Tapas & Pinchos + Flamenco (or Picasso) with a private guide
- - - This is a perfect introduction to the city - - -
You have probably heard about Tapas and Pinchos. A peculiar ways of eating that we have in Spain.
Pintxos is a variant of the tapas, and became popular in the Basque Country. Both options are very extended in the whole Spain.
In Barcelona there are many new shops where you can eat it. That's why I would like to take you to the most emblematic ones of the city. Some of them are almost a hundred years old and have been visited by famous figures.
On foot, we will visit 3 shops. At the same time that we will walk down the food, we will seize this opportunity to see the old Barcelona and learn about its history and anecdotes.
To complete this funny tour I recommend ending the day seeing a Flamenco show. Or we can swap this activity for something totally different visiting the Picasso museum, which is in the Old Town as well.
Three places for "tapas" and "Pintxos" in the Old Town passing by Las Ramblas; Gothic Quarter; the Cathedral; the Royal Palace; etc.
As the Flamenco place is inside the Poble Espanyol, we will visit the Poble Espanyol without paying the entrance of it.
(Optional: to swap the Flamenco show for the Picasso museum)

Fantastic walking tour with intermittent stops at 3 excellent restaurants with recommendations on the best Tapas to try and introduction to Pinchos which were excellent! Francesc was professional and informative about the history of the area. Loved walking the back alleys of the Gothic Quarter with someone who knew his way around!
