All About Barcelona


Being back in Barcelona last week felt so comfortable, and luckily the city hasn’t changed much since I was last there. It's still as vibrant and inviting as ever, full of intricate art, bustling cafes and sunny skies. We had a leisurely stay at Hotel Condes de Barcelona on Passeig de Gracia in L’Eixample, a central area of town with loads of good shopping. And each day we drank cafe con leches at El Fornet and admired Gaudi’s incredible works of art, La Pedrera and Casa Batll√≥.

My favourite parts were lounging by Barceloneta beach, exploring El Born, going to church at La Catedral on Easter (and then setting up a hunt for my cousin!), dancing at Opium, enjoying wine and paella at Pez Vela on the water, walking around Park Guell, visiting my old flatmate, admiring the fresh fruit at La Boqueria and eating pan con tomate everywhere we went. I hope we can make another trip to Barcelona while we're over here, because I simply adore it!
