Spain, a top food and wine destination, has six distinct culinary districts - the North, Pyrenees, Valencia, Andalucia, Central and Catalonia.
Catalonia's largest and most well known city, Barcelona, is a popular port city on Spain's northeastern coast. Because of its location on the Balearic Sea and a stone's throw from the Mediterranean, Barcelona's gastronomy scene is characterized by amazing seafood. One of the great dishes to try is the calamari and squid, which you can get either fried or grilled.
Travelers, however, will find all types of culinary delights, reflective of the colorful history and centralized location in relation to northern Africa and all of the Mediterranean.
