I visited Pappabubble on my own in May 2014** it was reasonably easy to find but it is quite small. Once inside I was advised the time that the guys would start with the candy preparation as they weren't ready to start another batch yet. I visited a nearby cafe and came back maybe 25 minutes later. It's free to... More

Take your time. We came too soon and waited fifty minutes until the actual work begun. The whole process is astounding. The chef tried a new penguin candy and it was almost perfect... But very delicious.

Thanks to Edgar for introducing us to this shop where I found a little piece of heaven and was able to bring heaven home with me to share. Everyone loved their souvenir handcrafted candies when I got home. It's a good thing I brought a big suitcase with me to Barcelona.

A place devoted to sweets. Home made caramel sweets of a vast variety. Tasty, stylish, not expensive and did i say tasty? Try the 500 gram variety pack for only a few euros. Take a few packs home as a gift. A lovely shop all together.

This is a really cool little Rock shop where you can see it being made. Flavours are very nice with an interesting Barcelona mix bag. Even the smell in the shop is inviting ... just don't tell your dentist

A terrific old-style candy shop with delicious candy that's handmade right in front of you. Smells great, could hardly drag myself out of there.

It's great to see someone still making candy the old fashioned way! Not obvious from the main roads, there's a little place that still does everything by hand, one batch at a time. I stopped in before dinner and they were making butterscotch and offered me a taste while it was still being folded - you haven't lived until you... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
