What you'll do

Barcelona is known for its diverse culinary offer and its visitors can taste the best delicacies of the Mediterranean gastronomy in many different places, you just have to know where to go. We invite you to be part of our food journey and discover with each step new flavors, smells, and colors while we take you to 2 markets, through the old city center, to finish on a rooftop terrace with the best selection of tapas.

Market tour - La Boqueria & Santa Catarina
We start the trip at the famous Boqueria market and taste the best ham in the world, a cheese with several world awards, and a variety of nuts of the highest quality.
Afterwards, we will guide you through the Gothic Quarter, where we will explain a little about the city's history and evolution over the years.

After this short walk through the beautiful streets, we will arrive at the square of the Cathedral of Barcelona, seeing the bottom of our next stop; the market of Santa Caterina, with its wonderful roof, covered by the art of Gaudí on top. In it, we taste the best fruits in the city, we share one of the best secrets in the market, and we introduce you to the best kinds of meat and fish.

Tapas on the roof - with view on the Santa Catarina market
We finish our trip in the best possible way; on a private rooftop terrace on which we will share some tapas accompanied by cava and wine, while we overlook the market.

My name is Laurha Damen and I am a Dutch girl living in Barcelona for 4 years now. I have been a tour guide for the past 2,5 years and I know the city in and out. I love to organize events, to bring people together, and I like to share my knowledge of this city with the world.

I'm working together with Aridane Perez, who is a Spanish professional chef from the Canary Islands, with many years of experience (Hoffman, W hotel, Mandarin hotel, Born to Cook).

The rooftop is owned by home cook Laura Bileskalne, a homemade cook who has a gift in making connections and making people feel welcome. Guests always leave her place in a happy state of mind.

Laura has the best rooftop terrace of Barcelona, and together we created the 1st 1 table restaurant. @1tablerestaurant on Instagram.

Laurha is amazing and one of the kindest, warmest people we have ever met! She highly personalized this event for us and our dietary restrictions. We left so satisfied, after hours of amazing fresh food and conversation. We definitely made a new friend in Laurha and will recommend this to all of our friends!

We loved it! Ari, the chef, showed us around and knew a lot about Spanish cuisine. He really took his time and we were able to try out different foods on the two markets (even me, a vegetarian). The lunch prepared on the rooftop was beyond what we expected, so much tasty food! You get a lot for what you pay for.
