David’s Been Here brings you to one of Barcelona, Spain’s most cherished and celebrated restaurants: Los Caracoles. Founded in 1835, this family-run establishment located in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter started out as a specialty market, selling only a few staple items. After turning towards prepared foods, the famous snail dish (caracoles) was eventually offered, and the rest is history. Aurora Bofarull, the fifth generation owner explains some of the restaurant’s history, its vast menu, and central location, which all together have made Los Caracoles the success that it is today. Enjoy some classic Spanish music while you savor their Mediterranean-Catalan inspired dishes, serving everything from seafood to roasted chicken, and of course, the signature snails. So when you’re touring Barcelona, don’t just sightsee all the history… Head to Los Caracoles where you can actually taste it.
