It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Barcelona is renowned for sun and sea, but there is more to the province than just that as may winter sports fans will know. Many popular ski resorts are open from the 6th December, which means it is time to clean those skis and and get to the nearest ski slope as soon as possible.
Upon entering Llamber Taberna Gastronómica, a new restaurant on Carrer Fusina, you know that you are somewhere special. The break out area with tables and stools, ideal for a quick bite or just for drinks, is adjacent to the window that looks out on to the soon to be finished market.
If you love natural products or are penchant to an olive, a visit to Olive Delicatessen del Mediterraneo is a must. Noted, it is a mouthful to say, but this little gem that sells the Mediterranean’s staple olive in all different products is located between El Born and La Barceloneta with high quality offerings.
World Press Photo is one of the most established and prestigious photojournalism competitions in the world. Think – 156 award winning photos, eight cities of forty countries and I think you can understand the depth that much more. The exhibition is on in Barcelona at the CCCB until 6th January and is a sure hit in the city, last year saw 35,159 visitors attend.
We are very much in love with hamman spa Aire de Barcelona, having previously blogged about this gem of a spa in spring earlier this year. Not to be mistaken as a gift for the ladies as you will find both genders at this secluded haven. Select treatments personally for your loved one and then have it presented in a traditional gift box.
MUTT Bookshop and art gallery, located in El Born neighborhood offers and extensive assortment of books about contemporary art, design, fashion, photography, street art, illustration, photography, architecture, etc. Why is this place great? Well as Barcelona is renowned for being an artistic hub, we think a contemporary book is most fitting.
