Get on an exclusive tour of a closed-to-the-public market
Barcelona is a fish lover’s town. The Spanish have a true appreciation for seafood dishes–and fish of every size and description. And for restaurateurs, one of the most important places in Barcelona is the wholesale fish market. And now, the public can get in on a special fish market tour.
Of course, this market is closed to the public. Or, at least, it was until the Majestic Hotel & Spa arranged a marine biologist-led tour of this incredible market. It is an opportunity available only to Majestic guests. Marine biologist Anna Bozzano leads participants on this incredible fish market tour, educating them on the day’s catch. (This is likely to include such local favorites as hake, monkfish, langoustines and cod.) Participants will get to witness chefs barter for their daily specials. You’ll gain insight into what fish are important to Spanish cuisine and how the local catch impacts the local food scene. The tour includes a seafood tapas experience in the fishermen’s neighborhood, “La Barceloneta.” And the day ends with dinner at the hotel, prepared from today’s catch.
