Catalonia for enthusiastic “foodies”

Book
Catalonia's gastronomic tradition has been slowly simmering for generations. The result is a succulent recipe in which quality products and exquisite dishes are combined with establishments and restaurants which make this region the perfect option for enthusiastic foodies.

To sample this tradition, there is an extensive menu of Gastronomic Experiences to choose from. You can discover the origins of olive oil, put on an apron and prepare a typical Catalan dish, visit a farmers' market or go on a fine food tour of Barcelona. The most inspirational places bear the Gastronomic Experiences label, created by the Catalan Tourist Board (ACT). This distinction identifies businesses and organisations which specifically offer fine food experiences and activities which allow you to discover the gastronomy of Catalonia.

Fine Dining Hotels

Featuring among the ingredients which will make your visit to Catalonia a unique gastronomic experience are the Gastronomic Hotels. This is a select group of places to stay which have been awarded the label by the ACT. To merit it they must meet a range of requirements such as not having more than 60 rooms, offering quality fine food which is based on Catalan cuisine and having welcoming and friendly service.

Your table is already set, so when are you going to come and savour Catalan cuisine?
