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.
Several thousand years ago, Iberic Celts settled on Montjuïc, a 213m high hill southeast of Barcelona’s current city centre. The hill was later used by the Romans as a ceremonial site, and then the 1800’s saw the crowning construction of the castle. Today Montjuic is full of sights and attractions, most of them originating from two major events that took place here: the 1929 International Exhibition and the 1992 Olympics.
You never know, you might get bored wondering through all that history, exploring the many galleries or original clothes shops; you might get tired of drinking cortados and watching the world and its weirdos and wonderfuls go by; you never know, it might even rain. Fear not, Barcelona has an alternative pastime, and fortunately, it’s an alternative to watching beautiful films on the big screen doblado-ed badly into Spanish. The city has VO (version original) cinemas to suit all tastes, and many languages (but mostly English).
