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.
If you are a lover of chocolate and the thing you look forward to the most is a Lindt or gourmet easter egg, this post is for you. When I first moved to Barcelona I remember going to supermarkets on the hunt for some chocolate Easter treats and coming back home rather disappointed. The selection was beyond boring, but I soon realised that this was because locals buy their treats from a pastisseria. Leading up to Semana Santa, you will find people walking around with a monstrosity that is almost the size of an infant child but is in fact a huge Easter egg, normally gift-wrapped to perfection.
CaixaForum presents a wonderful exhibition that encourages one to evaluate the uncertainty that many undergo in life in general. Whether it is inequality, pressure of conformity amongst other things, they are things that many can identify with. The exhibition is centered around a space and rather spread out, perhaps representing the concept of freedom and loos at the pivotal role art can play during this state of affairs. Anish Kapoor’s pregnant wall,a very modernist structure, is a manipulation of a simple form within a space. You have to be standing at a profile to really see the form of the bump that is part of the white gallery wall itself.
Nestled in the street of Pl Comercial is a low lit restaurant that is hard to miss, Morelia. This Argentinian joint not only oozes sophistication but has impeccable customer service and a lively and fun atmosphere. Set in the Born district, it makes a great hub for those wanting to hang out afterwards with a plethora of bars surrounding the restaurant. The menu, although simple, has a variety of dishes that are delicious and well presented.
