The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, aka La Boqueria, is one of Europe’s biggest and most famous food markets. So of course during our trip to Barcelona, we had to come visit and explore!
When Koen and I travel, choosing where to eat is very important to us. So of course we first wanted to eat at Tickets, but soon realized the impossibility of a reservation. We settled for the next best thing – lunch at Bodega 1900, one of the concept restaurants by Albert and Ferran Adrià (of El Bulli fame).
You can’t really think of Barcelona without the architect Antoni Gaudí coming to mind. His distinctive style of Catalan Modernism is so unique and magical. So colorful and whimsical!
Jamón Ibérico, the famous cured ham from Spain is a must-eat while in Barcelona. We had a cured ham bar right around the corner from our apartment, so we feasted on delicious ham sandwiches and patatas bravas for breakfast.
Koen and I just returned from a long weekend in Barcelona, where my graduation was being held. We stayed in the Gràcia neighborhood, in the north of the city, where Park Güell is located. Of course it’s fun to explore the neighborhood!
