Catalan cuisine has great history and nowadays it is one of the main reasons tourists visit Barcelona - to explore the tastes and flavours of the region. The sea is the city’s best friend, so you can expect a lot of fresh seafood (but not only). It is easy to love the Spanish cuisine - it offers everything for everybody, no matter if he is a vegan, vegetarian, or a hardcore meat-lover.
