What is this?

A unique culinary experience that combines a visit to the historic Santa Caterina Market with a hands-on tapas workshop. The adventure begins with a guided tour of the market, Barcelona's first covered market and a rich symbol of the city's heritage. Inaugurated in 1848, the market stands on land that was once home to the Convent of Santa Caterina. Its vibrant, modern appearance, characterized by a colorful, Gaudí-inspired roof, encases a bustling hub of fresh, regional produce. Here, you'll engage with local vendors, gain insights into the Mediterranean diet, sample local delicacies, and understand the importance of fresh, regional produce for your tapas. Following the market visit, you will walk to Canela Fina, where you will be greeted with a welcome drink and a brief explanation of the venue's history, strongly linked to Catalonia and its culture. Our expert chefs will lead you in creating a variety of traditional tapas, turning your fresh finds into culinary masterpieces.
