Our walking tour with Cayetano started off with a morning cup of chocolate with a type of donut to dunk into. Yum. We stopped in two fresh food markets were we sampled local olives, iberico ham, and cheese. Amazing sights and smells through old Barcelona. Cayetano shared the history of the city as we moved about. He arranged a lunch reservation at his favorite spot where we enjoyed local fare. What a fantastic tour that we would highly recommend.
