DESCRIPTION

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 Barcelona’s only fishermen harbor. Then, you’ll taste 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 and learn about traditional and modern fishing techniques. Moreover, you’ll get personal and insightful stories about Barcelona’s fishermen 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. There, you’ll learn all 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. 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.

Very unique way to see the city!

I did the “Sea To Table Experience” and enjoyed every minute of it. You get a completely different perspective of Barcelona, difficult to find amongst the mass tourism these days. It was relaxing and yet we saw and learnt a lot. The food was excellent and the guides very friendly and knowledgable; you can tell that a lot of thought and passion went into creating the experience.

The tour completes my vacation in Barcelona!

Cristina and Guillermo showed me the best restaurant I have ever had in Barcelona with beautiful wine pairing. Anna, the marine expert taught me so much with her admirable passion. I can only say that this tour not only completes my vacation in Barcelona, also means a lot to my life.

It is how it is. I met the best beautiful people, the guides and the attendants. Once people are gathered for one simple reason: sustainability, the sparks and excitement in between is the best fruit you’d love to take.
