Tapas Route in Poble Sec

Poble Sec is a neighbourhood found at the foot of Montjuïc hill, a great place to enjoy a more authentic atmosphere, given there are few travellers who include it in their itineraries.

Every Thursday, starting 19.00 you can have a “pincho” or a “tapa” and a glass of wine or beer for only 2 euros. Here you can find a list with all the bars participating in this route and their corresponding addresses.
