WHAT TO EAT IN BARCELONA  

You could spend your whole life in Barcelona and never be tired of its food! We want to give you some hints with this list of 5 tasting experiences you cannot miss in Barcelona: 1. Eat a Paella in front of the beach in Barceloneta. We think it is not necessary to describe what this heavenly food is. Try it without regrets! 2. Try a Bomba. It’s a tennis ball-sized potato croquette served with two different sauces: a white garlic Alioli and a creamy and spicy red dressing. 3. Simplicity is always the best. Taste the Pa amb Tomàquet, bread-rubbed with garlic and the juice of a tomato and seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 4. Esqueixada, probably the most authentic Catalan salad you can eat. It is made with bacalao (or raw salted cod) and served with romesco sauce, tomatoes, onions, and black olives. 5. Last but not least, the world-famous Crema Catalana, a creamy vanilla custard blows torched until it forms a glassy crust. ¡Ñam!

WHAT TO DO IN BARCELONA  

Every month is a fiesta in Barcelona; here just a few suggestions. January: The eve of the Epiphany (the 5th January) is marked by the arrival of the wise men by boat at Port Vell. These extravagantly dressed gentlemen set off on the Cabalgada de Reyes – a grand parade of floats replete with acrobats, clowns, and elves, from which the Kings dish out sweets to local kids. April: St. George (Sant Jordi), patron saint of Catalonia. Undoubtedly his festival is one of the most colorful in the city as the entire length of Las Ramblas turns into a flower stall. July/August: Sala Montjuic; this event takes place in the Montjuic fortress. You can enjoy a romantic picnic and jazz concert before a night of open-air cinema.
