11am-1pm Discovering Gracia

Expect to discover the neighbourhood in depth, see its many charming plazas (squares), see where the locals shop, spot organic food stores (very common in the neighbourhood) and discover plenty artisanal shops. You can let us know what you’re into at the beginning of the tour so that we can customize it to spend more time at the places that really matter to you.

Together we’ll really discover the atmosphere of Gracia as we’ll also take you to spots not even known by the locals…
There’ll be plenty of time for questions and conversation, or just enjoying your favourite spots of the day.

1 pm Optional Lunch at the Market

After a good tour comes good food… One of our last stops of the day will be the visit of the local market, where we’ll purchase local and seasonal products before cooking them at one of the traditional market bars where we’ll enjoy lunch.

This is an experience not to be missed, so we highly recommend you to book it along with the tour.
