When you visit Spain you will soon discover the importance of food to the Spanish way of life. In particular Spain’s love of tapas. In the below article we provide information on why you should join the Barcelona Tapas Tour “en el Barrio”.

Overview of Barcelona

Spain has a rich and intriguing history, from the early Greek and Roman influences through to the Civil War in the mid-1930’s. In modern times Spain has become popular as a holiday destination and for expats to relocate to sunnier, warmer climates.

While Madrid is the country’s official capital, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia in the North East of Spain. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and with a busy shipping harbour. It I also the 5th most visited city in Europe, attracting around 5.5 million visitors each year.

Reasons why people should visit Barcelona

There are plenty of beautiful sandy beaches in Barcelona, but there’s more to the Catalan capital than sunbathing. That said temperatures rise in the summer months, with July and August being the busiest period for tourists.

As well as the many bars and restaurants available, there are lots of famous attractions right on your doorstep. In fact, Barcelona is home to 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Possibly the most instantly recognised of these is the Sagrada Familia. It is one of architect Antoni Gaudi’s most famous works. Construction started on the church back in 1882 and is finally due to be completed around 2026.

Other tourist attractions include the Park Guell, again thanks to Antoni Gaudi. You should also visit Casa Mila, where the architect once lived.
