Are you ready to taste the freshest local seafood and to discover the fishing tradition which is part of Barcelona’s essence? We have created this Sea to Table Experience for curious foodies that want to go beyond classic food tours and discover one of the essential aspects of Catalan cuisine, the seafood, from the sea straight to your plate.
Together with your guide Cristina, owner and founder of Barcelona Slow Travel, and a real expert in high-end local food and drinks, you’ll visit the neighborhood of La Barceloneta, home of Barcelona’s only fishermen harbor, before tasting the finest and freshest seafood in town.
First, you’ll visit Barcelona’s authentic fishermen harbor, usually closed to the public. You will be guided by an expert guide, running a project to raise awareness towards sustainability in the fishing world. You’ll meet local fishermen, learn about traditional and modern fishing techniques and get some personal insightful stories about Barcelona’s fishermen’s life.
During the visit, you’ll see the fishing boats coming back from the sea with the fresh catch of the day, an experience you will remember for long. After that, you’ll assist to the “fishmonger’s only”, reverse-auction fish market and learn about the secrets of the distribution of fresh fish in Barcelona.
After the visit, we’ll take you to a nearby gourmet slow food restaurant for a unique gastronomic experience. You’ll taste freshly caught fish, from the same fishermen you just met, all cooked using organic, local and seasonal ingredients. Prepare yourself for a real feast, where you will taste seafood tapas, traditional fish dishes, and creative desserts. The dining experience comes with a fantastic selection of local, natural wine pairing and is a must for seafood lovers.
This Sea to Table Experience comes highly recommended for couples, group of friends and/or company incentives.
