Barcelona is unquestionably the most popular destination in Spain. The capital of Catalonia offers a perfect combination of culture and entertainment. At the same time that we have great museums and the incomparable Gaudí works around the city, we also have beaches and parties going on everywhere.
Between one stop and another, you will find a series of bars and restaurants serving the famous tapas. For those unfamiliar with this Spanish tradition, they are famous aperitifs served in these establishments while Spaniards drink and make small talk.
Legend has it that they were served in Middle Ages by the owners of the taverns so that customers do not get too drunk after spending hours ingesting wine. If in the beginning the tapas basically included cold foods, such as cheese and ham, nowadays they are quite diverse. In fact, they have already become practically a Spanish cultural expression linked to gastronomy.
Most tapas bars have very informal and even somewhat tumultuous environments, but they are some of the main meeting points in the country. To get into the mood of the destination, see where to taste the best tapas in Barcelona.
