El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria and the Museu de la Xocolata (Chocolate Museum) take you back to Barcelona in 1700.
There are things that seem so normal today, although not everyone could afford them until recently. Chocolate has always been one of those foods that was out of reach for many people, and even carob was used as a substitute during the war and post-war period in Spain. El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria would like to take you back a few years, to the 18th century, with a guided tour called Un jaciment de xocolata (A Chocolate Deposit) to show the products that were all the rage at the time, one of which was chocolate. It was evidently a food for people of high social status and it probably wasn’t consumed in the same way as it is today. El Born CCM and the Museu de la Xocolata join forces to explain all this and tell you much more about this sweet food that fills fridges and pantries all over the world.
The guided tours will be given on Saturday 15 February, and 7 and 21 March at 5.30 pm. Each tour will last approximately 90 minutes and will also include a chocolate tasting, just like they did 300 years ago in the city of Barcelona. The visit is obviously suitable for everyone... only if you like chocolate, of course!
Tickets cost €6.00 per person and if you would like to come in a group of more than 10 people, you will need to book in advance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 93 256 68 50. You can buy your tickets here.
