Flamenco may hail from the south of Spain, but that doesn’t mean the passionate song and dance can’t be found in Barcelona, if you know where to look!

Get to know how flamenco fits into Barcelona’s story, and in the meantime, taste and discover the truly authentic cuisine of of our city.

Over sweet red Spanish vermouth and traditional tapas, your guide will give you a crash course in Barcelona’s tapas scene, as well as a fascinating introduction to the mysterious story behind flamenco. All your questions will be answered… Where it comes from, what they’re singing about, how it fits into Spanish culture today and more.
Armed with this knowledge, your guide will lead you to a hidden flamenco venue, housed in a gorgeous 17th century palace and nearly hidden from plain sight. There, you will sit down to an intimate show and experience firsthand the passion of talented local artists.
After the performance, the group will stretch their legs and head to one of the city’s most magical wine bars, tucked away in the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter.

The experience was hospitable and a great way to be welcomed to the city. Would highly recommend doing this early in your visit so that your wandering later in the trip will be enhanced by all your new knowledge and tips!
Not only was our guide extremely knowledgeable, he was very entertaining as well! We had a great time eating, drinking, talking, laughing, and learning about wine and Barcelona. The whole evening was fantastic and fun and we would highly recommend it.
After enjoying our Devour Madrid Tour last year, we were very excited to try a Devour Barcelona Tour. The Tour did not disappoint. Renee was a wonderful hostess, sharing her love of food and stories of the local culture and history. These tours are a wonderful way to learn about a city and truly enjoy some amazing food and people.
