Full description
Start your afternoon’s experience with aperitifs in a beautiful rustic bar. Get to know your fellow travellers and guide as they share some of the intertwined history and culture of the area, to set the scene for the rest of your tour. 

Learn about the traditions of vermouth, the little alleyways of Born, the politics in Catalunya - from the medieval past to the civil war and how all these have influenced the eating culture today.
 
Over the next few hours, visit three more tapas food stops, indulging in dishes from different parts of Spain and savoring the drinks that are paired with them. Your final stop is a traditional wine bodega, where you indulge in the art of wine tasting.
