An Inside Tip for Foodies
Our O Insight Barcelona Travel Guide is full of wonderful places where you can enjoy good gastronomy. However, being a city that is attractive to tourists means that I always like to run away from the masses.
Every Saturday morning and every time I receive visitors, I love to start the day eating a “Tortilla de Patatas” (Potato Omelet) and a coffee with milk in “Mantequerías Pirenaicas” (C/Muntaner 460), a small bar for locals. I personally believe they make the best tortillas in the whole city.
Mention some vibrant activities to live the city
As an athlete, I’m always available for any plan that involves physical exercise. One of my favourite plans is to wake up early and start the day off by going for a jog on “Carretera de Les Aigúes”. It’s easy to walk through, unpaved terrain, that offers over ten kilometres of magnificent views of Barcelona.
After exercise, there is nothing better than enjoying a good tapas route. During the month of May, Barcelona celebrates the “Hotel Tapa Tour.” During this time many of the most emblematic hotels in Barcelona open their doors. Moreover, with the help of the most renowned chefs and bartenders, they create gastronomic proposals in the form of tapas at a special price for all budgets.
Name a breath-taking view in the city
Barcelona is a city that offers the possibility of enjoying the sea. Yet it also allows us to enjoy the mountains and breathtaking views of the city.
Moving away from the well-known bunkers of the Carmel, or the MNAC, the are many other areas that worth visiting and whose views will amaze you.
One of these unknown placers for tourists, but a must for its sights and its pure air is the “Jardines del Turó del Putxet” (C/ Manacor, 9), which is located on a hill on the top of Putxet neighbourhood. You will be very impressed by its wonderful outlook on the whole city.
