  • Sant Jordi


    Sant Jordi

    Roses, books and romanticism, that’s what Barcelona is all about on the 23rd of April.
    Last Sunday we celebrated Sant Jordi, the patron saint of Catalonia. This man was the hero in the legend of Sant Jordi where he saved the king’s daughter by killing a dragon. Out of the spilt blood of the dragon grew a bush of red roses and flowers. Since the 8th century, Sant Jordi is venerated in this whole region and the legend still remains extremely important in Catalonia. Many attractions, such as Casa Batlló, are decorated with roses and all streets are filled with red roses. Traditionally, the boys would give a rose to the girls, while the girls would give a book to the boys in return. Nowadays however, everybody gets roses and books. Walking down the Ramblas while checking the numerous books in Spanish and Catalan is a must during the day of Sant Jordi.

  • Poble Espanyol


    Poble Espanyol

    The Spanish town or, Pueblo Español, located on the Montjuich hill, was first built for the World Exhibition in 1929. Used as an open-air museum with specific architecture from the different Spanish
    regions with contemporary art and handicraft shops became an enjoyable place for everybody, both the locals and the people visiting. This little town really is alive due to many events that are organised during the whole year. Weddings, concerts, festivals and workshops are only a few examples of the endless list. This unique combination of characterised houses and a great atmosphere makes it a place to absolutely visit during your stay in Barcelona. This unique location is also ideal for our cooking workshops. Right next to the main square we’ve got a beautiful place where you will be accompanied by well-experienced chefs, a pleasant atmosphere and delicious ingredients to create a tasteful paella or tapas dish. A truly must do if you want to experience the real Catalan culinary art!

  • Las Canaletas


    Las Canaletas

    In the beginning of La Rambla you can find this tiny, non-remarkable fountain which is named ‘la Fuente de Canaletas’. At first sight, most people just walk by without knowing the value of this place. But how can we blame you if nobody tells it? After this little explanation you’ll definitely need to have a look next time you pass by. As you all probably know, football is highly important in Barcelona, and so is the celebration after. But what has this fountain to do with the football history of Barcelona? Well this Canaletas Fountain is used as the meeting place for the celebration of victories of FC Barcelona. Every time when Barcelona wins, the Ramblas is entirely filled with people celebrating the victory all night long with beers, flags and a lot of noise. It truly is an incredible spectacle that you can’t miss! But keep this in mind: you won’t be home before next morning!
