Barcelona Design Tours

What is this?

Discover Barcelona's architectural heritage while savoring its unique food culture. Barcelona is renowned for both its cuisine and architecture, and with Consuming Architecture, we blend these two in a sensory feast. We visit 3-4 historical establishments, where we follow the local custom of having tapas and an aperitif before sitting down to dine. Marvel at the beauty of historical, early 20th-century interiors while enjoying local wines and tapas dishes. The highlight of our tour is a visit to a renowned restaurant set in an Art Nouveau-style apartment. Consuming Architecture is an experience that will linger long after your holiday is over.

What makes this unique?

We begin our journey with a glass of vermouth or cava, a Spanish sparkling wine, in a historic ultramarinos in the Eixample, recently named one of the most beautiful shops in the world. Here, we'll discuss the development of the area and its singular architectural style. From there, we stroll to another historic venue, nestled in a first-floor modernista apartment. It boasts an outdoor terrace, perfect for further drinks and engaging conversation. The final stop of the tour is a real gem – a singular modernista building with a breathtaking entrance. Here, after the guide has shown them the premises and explained its fascinating history, guests (without the guide) will enjoy a three-course meal with wine in a sumptuous private dining room.
