Casa Gispert was a perfect stop on our Devour Tours food tour. Head to the back of the store and turn left and you’ll see the tall stack of wood used to fuel the roaster that’s right there in the store. We went back later...More

While walking around El Born, we passed by Casa Gilbert. We could not resist and had to enter. Their collection of dried fruits, preserved fruits, spices, oils and vinegars is awesome. The products are organized in rustic shelves and boxes that take you back in...More

I loved the old fashioned feel of this shop. All of the dried fruits and nuts were beautifully displayed and of a really good quality. The spices were great too....I’ve stocked up on paprika and saffron. I wish I had bought more since the prices...More

Wonderful old shop. The sales girl was friendly and gave us samples of the almonds she'd just roasted. We bought some of the pulverones (what we call pecan crescents in the South, but these are made with almonds and cinnamon) but we ended up eating...More

If your are interested in food and quality ingredients, Casa Gispert is worth a visit for its roasted nuts, coffee and olive oil selections. It's a lovely old shop and quite near Basilica Santa Maria del Mar and a short walk from the Picasso Museum....More

Go ahead and ask them about the oven they roast almonds in… You may get lucky and get a tour of their wood fired roaster which is over 100 years old. They’re very proud of it! Our tour guide took us here to show it...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few

regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
