Tourism has changed a lot of things in the Gothic Quarter, but local institutions do still exist—you just need to know where to look. We'll start our evening at a bar that opened in 1927 and is a much a part of the neighborhood as the nearby churches and monuments are. Here we'll have vermouth and cava—because why stop at one aperitif when you could have two?—paired with cured meats, cheeses and more.Fortified by our first stop, it's time to dig into the history of Barcelona and the Gothic Quarter of the past. We'll start our 50-minute historic walking tour with Roman ruins and work our way through thousands of years of history, uncovering secrets and hidden corners as we go. While weaving through the Gothic Quarter, it will become clear to you that the food we eat in Barcelona today would be very different if not for all the twists and turns the city went through in the past.By now, we'll be ready for more tapas. Our second stop opened in 1945, and has been serving the same four tapas ever since! Of course by now, they've perfected each one, and these bites sum up what Spanish food is all about: fresh, local ingredients that shine with little intervention.On the way to the next stop, we'll weave through Barcelona's narrow backstreets and your guide will bring more of Barcelona's past to life.Finally, it’s time for a sit-down meal at a tapas bar that originally opened in 1935 as a shop selling ice, wine and olive oil. Here you’ll enjoy a selection of traditional Catalan dishes, along with local red wine. Dinner wouldn’t be complete without something sweet, so we'll finish the night with a classic dessert—the Catalan precursor to crème brûlée.By the time we part ways, you'll have seen some of Barcelona's top sights and eaten at the city's most beloved bars. More than that, you'll understand how the two go hand in hand
