About the Experience

If you are looking for a truly local day trip experience outside of Barcelona, this is the tour for you! We will head outside of the city to the nearby village of Alella, where we have a delicious and authentic morning full of local fun and food waiting for you.

  • First you’ll meet your guide and fellow foodies for private transport to the gorgeous village of Alella (the transport to and from Alella is included in your ticket).
  • Next up, the village bodega! You’ll taste wines and vermouth straight from the barrel at this famous and buzzing local favorite tapas bar.
  • Your guide will take you on a visit of the local market, where you’ll have the chance to learn about and buy local specialties.
  • Finally, the main event! You’ll experience one of the most authentic Catalan winter celebrations, feasting on grilled locally-grown spring onions called calçots (see more information below!)
  • Then for the next course – a lunch of grilled meats and delicious Catalan favorites, all paired with local wines
  • Finally you’ll end with coffee and dessert!

What are calçots you ask? They are one of the region’s most authentic and special seasonal foods. Every winter Barcelona locals head for the countryside to feast on these delicious local spring onions which are grilled over an open flame, and eaten with a delicious special sauce. After stuffing themselves with onions, the locals then enjoy a barbecue of grilled meats and side dishes, all washed down with local wines.

Sound like fun? It’s an amazing, one-of-a-kind Barcelona experience! On our 5-hour day trip from Barcelona, you’ll feel like a local by experiencing a truly memorable taste of Catalan rustic village culture.

*Please note: Availability for our calçots experience is very limited due to the seasonal nature of the event! There is a minimum of 4 guests for this experience to take place. If the experience doesn’t reach the required minimum 5 days before the event date we will contact you and provide a full refund.
