Spain - Barcelona Scene


I just traveled to Barcelona to see my friend Txell. She is from Barcelona and we studied
German together years ago.

I spent the weekend, Friday to Monday with her, and we managed to do quite a lot. She lives in Gracia, where there are lots of lovely cafes and restaurants, however, this time of year, at the end of August, it's more quiet than usual, since all the locals are on holiday. All the shops are closed and people leave to travel to other parts of Spain or farther away for holidays.

My favorites places in Barcelona, thus far:

Candal Restaurant - It has THE Best Tapas!

Cerveceria Catalana - is an amazing restaurant in Carrer de Mallorca

El Born - "the trendy" area in Barcelona that you don't want to miss!

Ra Restaurant

Hotel 1898 - at the very top, there's this great bar with an amazing view of the city and it also has a great ambience.

There are about 10 nice beaches near the city. Just take the subway and get off at the Barceloneta Exit. Once there, you'll have your choice of a lot of different scenes!!!

Salud! desde Barcelona!!
(Cheers! from Barcelona!!)
