One of the best ways to enjoy Barcelona is with your taste buds. You'll find an amazing gastronomic culture ranging from reasonably priced daily set menus to internationally renowned Michelin-starred restaurants, together with traditional and creative tapas and tasting platters, or a glass of vermouth and a snack on a terrace with views of the Mediterranean. Bon appétit!

There are many Barcelonas, and the district of Sant Andreu is one of the clearest examples of this. Although outside the city centre, it is steeped in the essence of Catalonia: picturesque spots, history, centuries-old shops and futuristic amenities blend harmoniously. Come and visit and you'll feel like a genuine Barcelonian.
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.
It's no coincidence that Poble-sec has been given different names and nicknames in recent years. It could be said that it is one of Barcelona's most laid-back neighbourhoods so it's no surprise that the city's hipster set are making a beeline to live here. This authentic Barcelona neighbourhood was known as "little Paris" in the 1940s when it was a hotbed of fun and its cabarets, theatres, concert halls and bars were at the height of their popularity.
The Eixample isn't just a modernista site; it's a neighbourhood with a rich and varied culinary offering. If there was one thing the moneyed-classes of the time knew how to do, it was to eat well. That's why, in addition to its artistic heritage, the Eixample maintains its culinary standards as one of the signs of its identity.
If you're someone who enjoys savouring every trip to the full, this is unquestionably your time of year to visit Barcelona. Every year, with the first autumn rains, Catalonia undergoes a cultural and culinary transformation focusing on a food that is an intrinsic part of its identity: mushrooms.
