Influenced by other customs and food, Catalan cuisine is truly a mix of tradition and innovation. Dishes are varied and original. Barcelona’s location, not only near the sea, but also near the mountains, allows the city to enjoy the best products of both places. Roman culture marked the roots of Catalan cuisine, and many years later Italian, French, Greek and Jewish gastronomy have influenced it. As a result, this mix of cultures has brought about extraordinary cuisine.
