Your Tapas and Flamenco Tour of Barcelona begins at the main square of the Old Town, Plaza Sant Jaume where you will meet your local guide. As your guide leads you to your first tapas venue you will begin to understand the captivating history of this labyrinth-like neighborhood where a legend sits behind every ancient stone facade. This neighborhood was where the Romans first settled more than 2,000 years ago and until the 1100s it was the only area of Barcelona enclosed in a protective wall making this neighborhood a melting pot of thousands of years of history and cultures.
Tapas, small dishes of local foods, that are eaten much like a progressive dinner and this tour is no exception as your expert guide leads you to two authentic venues nestled away in the narrow streets of this fascinating quarter to share and try different dishes. Of course, tapas are not complete without the company of local wines and beers. With 2.9 million acres of vineyards and 400 microbreweries, there is no shortage of choices. This experience is a marvelous way to get acquainted with Spanish cuisine, getting you set up to order like a local for the rest of your trip!
The foot stopping and toe-tapping rhythms of flamenco have been listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. Flamenco, evolving over hundreds of years, is a reflection of the cultures who have inhabited the Iberian Peninsula giving us a mixture of Gypsy, Muslim, and Spanish culture into the enthralling live show that you will experience in person. The magical blend of guitar, percussion, and singing with dancers is flamboyant and color dresses make for an unforgettable experience. Sit back and sip on a local wine as the sounds and movement transport you to an extraordinary place of complete immersion in Spanish culture.
Your Flamenco Show & Tapas Tour Barcelona is not just about food and entertainment, it is an informative, first-hand experience that stands apart.
