A sweet treat for chocolate lovers
An unforgettable day in Barcelona is definitely the chocolate tour. The tour program includes the services of several exclusive gastronomes, all the material for the tasting and a box of chocolates of different flavours and origins, produced by one of the best chocolate factories in Spain.
During this exploration into the world of chocolate you will learn about the entire process that transforms the cocoa bean to chocolate. It ends with a chocolate dinner, which explores some of the possible combinations with chocolate. The dinner is served with wine.
It runs throughout the year and it is available in English, so the language won’t be a barrier for anybody.
Another chocolate-centered activity is the chocolate therapy at Gran Hotel Balneario Blancafort Thermal Center. The chocolate therapy program includes a body cleansing sugar-peeling, continues with a melted chocolate wrap and culminates with a relaxing massage using chocolate and orange cream.
Museu de la Xocolata
The highlight of Barcelona’s chocolate world is the Museu de la Xocolata, which tells the story of chocolate’s history in Europe. It also shows the manufacturing of chocolate, from the cocoa bean up to industrial production processes.
Even if the chocolate museum is one of the smallest museums in Barcelona, none of the other museums will tickle your senses as much as this one. You can smell the chocolate from the entrance through the exit. This is definitely somewhere to bring the kids!
There is also a shop where you can buy all kinds of chocolate variations and other sweets and at the café you can even taste the original Xocoatl.
And why not enjoy your bedtime cup of cocoa in one of Casamona’s cosy and luxurious apartments? Casamona offers numerous apartments in fantastic, central locations. These can all be seen at casamona.com
So, let’s see how chocolate in Barcelona tastes!
