Here we enter the old fisherman district the nowadays has been converted into a fancy area of youth and “yachts”, then you will cycle down Juan de Borbon street to reach the Colon statue and go up to the famous Ramblas where you will stop in Plaza Real with its characteristic lanterns designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Finally, you will get the most expected moment, the Jamon Experience, where you can have an interactive audiovisual tour of 20 minutes in the Museum of the Jamon and then you can taste 6 types of jamon (ham): Reserve, Iberian and four designations of origin of Iberian Jamón: Huelva, Extremadura, Guijuelo and Valle de los Pedroches, and a drink (glass of cava, a beer or a soft drink). You will see a professional Jamon Carver doing he’s art while getting those delicious thin slices.
