Barcelona is a thriving city, with much to do and see. It is a very lively place, and there are many attractions on offer. One of the main draws is the extremely exquisite cuisine. Whether you’ve come from Britain, or the States, Australia, or anywhere further afield, the food you’ll find here will be quite different from back home.
Spain grows nearly all of its own produce, guaranteeing the freshest of ingredients, and cooking is deeply ingrained into the culture.
But what if you’re traveling on a budget? Can you still get a good taste of things?
Another great thing about Barcelona is that food prices are a little lower than most western countries. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really lavish restaurants in which to indulge yourself, but if you need to watch what you spend there are also plenty of cheaper outlets.
