SPAIN

Barcelona, Spain

A dream came true! I always wanted to travel to Barcelona, the land of delicious food, arts and music! The sounds & colours of Barcelona’s streets are magic!

Carrer Del Bisbe, Barcelona (Barri Gòtic)

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia is the city of food, music, arts and sports! I adore it!Barcelona is a food lover’s paradise, with over 20 Michelin starred restaurants and tapas at every corner! One day you can eat in a Michelin restaurant next to Ferran Adria (the best chef of the world, the mastermind behind the Catalan restaurant ElBuli ) and the next day you can be at a small tapas restaurant, somewhere lost in the narrow streets of the city!

La Boqueria

A trip to Barcelona is not complete without a stop at La Boqueria. Barcelona’s best food market is packed with permanent stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, the best Jamón Ibérico, fresh olive oils and traditional sweets. These are all laid out around the central fresh fish market. La Boqueria isn’t all about buying and selling though, you can just as easily sit down for tapas and cold beers while tasting the Spanish delicacies and talking to the locals.

La Barceloneta

Furthermore, with six kilometres of pristine beaches, this urban destination also makes a great summer holiday with all the advantages of the city. With it’s Mediterranean climate the best time to visit Barcelona is early summer or autumn when temperatures are mild. Even if, one day of your vacation you don’t want to visit a restaurant, you have the option to take a walk in La Barceloneta and enjoy a beer by the sea!

El Arte & La Cultura

Barcelona is a city full of arts and architecture!

First of all, Barcelona is characterized by many of Antoni Gaudí’s unusual buildings and inspiring designs. Gaudí spent most of his life in Barcelona and the city boasts the largest concentration of his works in the world. Some of his amazing buildings are : Sagrada Família , Casa Batlló , Casa Milà(La Pedrera) , Parc Güell (Park Güell) , Casa Vicens and Cascada Fountain at Parc de la Ciutadella .

Another Spanish extraordinary talented artist is Pablo Picasso, he was famous painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer. We visited the Picasso Museum Barcelona , early in the morning and it was already crowded. The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is among the three largest collections of works by the painter next to the Prado in Madrid and the Picasso Museum in Paris. You should visit it, there’s always a Picasso to discover!

La Comida

Barcelona is food & food is Barcelona!

Every neighbourhood in Barcelona has its own charm, and its own assortment of gems worth visiting. That’s some essential Barcelona food experiences you shouldn’t miss when you visit the exciting Catalan city:

Dos Palillos

Α fusion of Asian cuisine with the Spanish Tapa culture, awarded with a Michelin star!

The first Michelin star restaurant, that I’ve visited in my life was Dos Palillos! That’s why, I love so much this restaurant! I remember, I was socked! Also, I was so lucky, cause that day were there the best chefs in Spain and around the world : Albert Raurich, Ferran and Albert Adrià!

Dos Palillos’s cuisine is based on the gastronomic offer from the far east: japan, china, thailand, vietnam etc… although it is true that currently they do make more japanese and chinese food: it will change as they acquire more gastronomic knowledge about other asian countries cuisines.

We tasted a 20 dishes menu dégustation (a tasting menu of collection of several dishes in small portions)! We adore Dos Palillos , because we love spanish tapas & asian cuisine and they can offer you the hospitality, the feeling, the atmosphere and the delicious food from both worlds!

Sensi Tapas first opened its doors in 2006 and has enchanted clients from all over the world with its delicious tapas, tasty wine and special energy. 

An original take on modern Mediterranean tapas cuisine in a vibrant setting that takes the traditional tapas bar to the next level.

Located in the emblematic Gothic quarter of Barcelona, Sensi Tapas draws direct inspiration from Barcelona and its surroundings, mixing the old gothic charms with a jungle and fresh vibe.  

Inspired by our motto “Come, bebe, la vida es breve” (Eat, drink, life passes in a blink), Sensi Tapas offers a unique dining experience, combining the qualities of a modern tapas restaurant with the vibrant buzz of Barcelona.

With much more than traditional tapas, their cuisine has French, Asian and Mediterranean influences.
