Unique dining experience with amazing food. Grab a seat (if you can find one) and the server gives you a choice of meat, fish, or veggies. They only serve each one way per day, so there is not much to think about. It might seem...More

This is a classic in the Boqueria market. The food is excellent and the employees work really hard to serve customers as fast as possible. It’s not always so easy to get a seat, but it’s well worth the wait.

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
