  • The sacred principles of "pa amb tomàquet"

    Gastronomy

    If you ask any Barcelona local to name the best Catalan invention of all time, nine out of ten will probably reply "el pa amb tomàquet!" (bread rubbed with tomato). More than a simple recipe, culinary technique or custom, the gesture of rubbing tomato on a piece of bread is a sign of Catalan identity.

  • Historic streets

    BCN Life

    The city streets are an extension of the lives of its inhabitants; they are part of their homes, their way of sharing and living together in what is, in short, their home or everyone's home. If we walk through Barcelona,  we'll see that every street has its own unique story to tell.

  • Barcelona's gin and tonic temples

    Barscelona

    In five short years, this curious invention, known as gin and tonic has conquered Barcelona's bars; so much so that bottles of gin fill their display cabinets and shelves.

  • The hidden jewels of the Raval

    Barscelona

    Once known as the "barri xino", the Raval was known for its disreputable atmosphere where alcohol, prostitution and lowlife walked hand in hand through its streets. This atmosphere is long gone and, for more than a decade now, the Raval has established itself as one of the city's coolest neighbourhoods and a focus of the city's entertainment and cultural scene.
