Feeling a little peckish after visiting Gaudi’s masterpiece? Let’s take a look at some of the best tapas restaurants near Sagrada Familia.
First of all, Barcelona is an accessible city so you’re never far from the best tapas in Barcelona, so there’s no obligation to eat in the area.
⚠️ 2023 Warning ⚠️: It’s now mandatory to book your Sagrada Familia tickets in advance.
The only way to guarantee your spot is by booking Sagrada Familia tickets online:
That said, if you’re looking for a quick fuel up here’s my top recommendations:
Sagradas Tapas: here they’ve got tapas of all kinds and a quality-price ratio that’s tough to beat – a rarity for tapas places just 5 minutes from the Sagrada Familia. Here you can try many of the best known Spanish tapas: Ensaladilla russa, pimiento del padron, escalivada, jamon iberico and many more. Sagradas Tapas is located at Av. Gaudì 48.
El Celler del Vermut: I started going to this tapas restaurant when I lived in the area, but I still go back even though I’m far away. It’s a great place to try croquetas, patatas bravas, tortillas, cantabrian anchovies, Spanish cheeses and Serrano ham. Make sure you get the Galician octopus though, best accompanied by a glass of vermouth. The restaurant is located 400 meters from the Sagrada Familia at Carrer de Lepant 239.
Finally, remember that the Sagrada Familia is one of the most visited attractions in Spain.
It’s important, arguably mandatory, to book your visit in advance so as not to risk finding it sold out – a common occurrence, especially in spring and summer.
