We signed up for an Aborigens Market Tour with Àlex while in Barcelona recently.
It was a superb day eating and drinking and tasting our way through a specific neighborhood. We enjoyed that he hosted the tour *outside* of the old-town part of Barcelona. If...More
My husband and I took the Beyond Tapas tour last week with Àlex. He took our small group of eight to restaurants in the neighborhood where he grew up, which I loved because I wanted to experience authentic Catalan-style choices.
We were completely blown away...More

We were given this connection to Aborigens and Francesc Castro from a friend who traveled to Barcelona a few weeks prior to our trip. "Whatever you do," he said. "You must include this local food tour." We connected with Cesc and signed up for the...More
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
