Sweet Barcelona

The perfect match for the sweet toothed

Sweet Barcelona

Are you passionate about sweets? Do you want to discover the origin of the best pastries? If you can’t resist the coques, nougat or turrón/ torrons, chocolates, cakes and croissants, Sweet Barcelona is your tour.

It is said that the sweet tradition of Barcelona is as old as the origins of the city. In the historic Roman colony of Barcino, our ancestors already ate desserts with honey and nuts.

Coques and digestive liqueurs such as moscatell were already popular in the Middle Ages as well as many varieties of desserts for the most important festivals of the year. With the arrival of cocoa, the possibilities of confectionery multiplied.

Today, Barcelona has become a recognized sweet destination with world-renowned pastry shops such as Escribà, Bubó and Hoffman and traditional bakeries like Brunells.

With Sweet Barcelona you will learn about the ingredients, their properties and the relationship with the festive calendar. The tour will take you through traditional bakeries and ovens where we will discover the best recipes.

We will start our tour through La Rambla, Granja Viader and Boqueria Market and then enter the Gothic Quarter visiting Petritxol Street, Plaza del Pi, Call and El Born/ Borne where our clients will be able to taste an artisan product.
