A bargain tapas offer. Every Friday starting at seven in the evening until eleven at night 19 establishments in the neighbourhood of La Marina will offer a top quality tapa and a drink for only 1.95 euros! Given the time of year, the menu will mainly include hot tapas to keep the cold at bay.

This route of tapas bars and restaurants lasts right up until Christmas so this is a great way to get into a festive spirit. Barcelona is a wonderful city in winter and a great place to celebrate Christmas. Also check out El Gotic and El Raval, both are wonderful festive barrios.

The route thought the lively La Marina district showcases the best the neighbourhood has to offer. Located between the Old Town and the Sagrada Familia, this is an area which many visitors to Barcelona miss. This tapas route aims to change this, and to introduce this friendly neighbourhood to outsiders with quality food and tapas at low cost; it also aims to help local people get to know better the best eateries in their neighbourhood.

To discover participating eateries you can see the website of the Association of Merchants of the district of La Marina http://comerciantslamarina.wordpress.com/. Also keep your eyes peeled for posters and flyers in and around La Marina.

Bon profit!
