Re: Any Catalan in here?

This post might be a little late for Nil already (did you already go to BCN, or is the trip still ahead?), but just thought I'd post something for others interested in visiting Barcelona in the future.

Much has been already posted already, and I agree with most of the places for food and sightseeing (I say most, because there were some I don't know yet ). So I will limit myself to some suggestions which were not posted yet:


Food:
- For tapas, you shouldn't miss going to the Ciutat Comtal. It's close to Plaša Catalunya...a definite MUST!

- A unique place to visit is the Boqueria, Barcelona's market hall and, to me, one of the most beautiful ones I've seen. If you're there, go to have lunch at El Quim. It's woth a visit!

- Two other places for great food are Els Quatre Gats and Cal Pep.

Places to visit:
- If you are football fan, you shouldn't miss the Camp Nou and its FC Barcelona museum.

- If you're in Barcelona on a Sunday, you should go to the Cathedral. In the mornings, the people there will be dancing the Sardanas, Catalonia's traditional national dance.

- A very nice day trip is to visit the Codorniu Winery.

Thanks!

Actually we moved to Barcelona! I will certainly go to those places. It is always good to have great recommendation to visit or eat somewhere.

Wow, that's nice! Enjoy it! I love Barcelona (obviously, because my family roots are there). I'll try to put some more destinations together for you, now that you have more time than during "regular vacation"
