Story, traditions and the choicest products
Have you ever wondered what Barcelona tastes like?
You won’t find it in a regular paella or in a glass of sangria. The authentic taste of Barcelona lies in its history, and La Boqueria, one of the first markets built in the city, still preserves and shows it through the expertise of the people who have made it their home.
All the traditions of fishermen, artisans and winegrowers have been passed down from one generation to the next, filling this amazing space with stories, curiosities and of course, the choicest products.
The authentic taste of Barcelona
La Boqueria is like a small town though, which has its pros and cons. If you want to feel welcome and get a taste of the real Boqueria, you won’t need a tourist guide, you’ll need a sponsor, someone who belongs there and knows the right people, so you can access the knowledge and stories behind each stall.
This will help you not only choose the best product, but taste it, knowing and appreciating every detail.
Living the true Boqueria Experience
That’s why Carlos and his team are your best companion. After more than 8 years rushing around the walkways of La Boqueria, he knows every name, every product and every hidden gem, which he has handpicked for you to live the true Boqueria experience and taste Barcelona with all of its spices.

My husband and I had heard about the Boqueria Market from friends and travel advisors and were excited to include a private tour of the market in our plans. We scheduled through the market’s web-site and quickly received a reply from Carles regarding our tour. The tour was a fabulous combination of sights, tastes, and conversation – a true experience. With Carles as guide we were able to engage in a fun conversation with the staff in the food stalls we visited – in spite of our limited Spanish – while enjoying a few samples along the way. We also enjoyed getting a peek into the private areas tourist cannot visit such as the beef aging locker. Our visit was concluded with an excellent sampling of wine and local tapas while enjoying a discussion with the owner of the bar and Carlos. It was well worth the time and was one of the highlights of our trip – not only for the opportunity to tour the market but also for the warm hospitality that Carlos provided.
