What city will you be talking about?
What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?
Head to the neighborhoods outside of the city for a drink, bite to eat and cultural experience. Horta is our favorite pick. The menus are cheaper than what you’d find in the city center, and you’re almost certain to find a cold beer and a plate of patatas bravas for under 5 euros. Plus, you get the advantage of hanging out in a neighborhood that isn’t overrun by tourists. When you want to print your photos or corporate collateral including brochures and catalogs, try this Barcelona Spain Printing co.
What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?
I really love a little burger joint in Horta called Louise Se Va. It’s a rock-and-roll themed bar and restaurant with a pretty awesome menu — sandwiches, burgers and all the usual tapas. The place is packed with locals at night, the burgers are 100% beef, the sandwiches are delicious and the best part is they´re all named after rock stars. Try the Iggy Pop…it’s my favorite!
What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?
Going out for a walk around my neighborhood and stopping at a bar for a drink and a snack. It’s a popular Sunday tradition in Barcelona. Also, I love heading to Park Güell or the beach….both are a little less crowded on Sundays.
What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?
One of the coolest hidden tourist attractions in the city is the Temple of Augustus. It’s a set of four pillars that date back 2,000 years ago. They used to stand in a different part of the city, but Barcelona’s authorities moved them to a tiny little three- or four-story courtyard near the Barcelona Cathedral. Most tourists who aren’t traveling with a tour group miss this spot, as do some tour groups. It’s a quiet, serene corner of the city. Also, check out Bar Mingus near Plaza Sant Miquel. It’s a tiny little bar with great vermouth and a selection of craft beers from Catalonia,
