Tapas is a Spanish culinary speciality. They are generally enjoyed during happy hour (which can last until 9:00PM) or as a restaurant menu. These delicious little snacks can sometimes be on the expensive side in more touristy locations. We have selected four spots in Barcelona to delight your taste buds.
