TWO Spanish cities have been ranked in the top 10 cities in the world for food.
TripAdvisor has just released a list of its top 10 food cities, based on data gathered using an algorithm that looked at bookings, traveller reviews and ratings from its 455 million visitors each month.
Barcelona was ranked 4th in the list, followed by Madrid at 8th.
“Foodie experiences are dominating traveller booking growth,” a TripAdvisor spokesperson said.
“Food tours are the fastest growing experiences category on our site based on traveller spend, which increased a whopping 61% last year versus 2016.”
Barcelona was noted for its contemporary Spanish and Catalan cuisine fusion and a seemingly infinite line-up of unassuming tapas bars, all-day eateries and upscale, Michelin-starred restaurants.
Madrid, the home of patatas bravas, was praised for its hidden gems, Michelin stars and popular food tours.
