Barcelona was the greatest surprise I had during my holidays in Europe. Not only for the city itself but for all the food variety I could find there and here I decided to share with you my favorite spots to eat in Barcelona!
Barcelona was the greatest surprise I had during my holidays in Europe. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t have huge expectations and Barcelona was never on my bucket list of cities to visit one day. However, Hubby is a crazy soccer fan and this was a must place to go for him. So, why not?
To my surprise, I simply loved the city. Barcelona is modern and charming, super busy and extremely cosmopolitan. For me, the high point was all the cuisine varieties you could find, from every single place in the world. They are also in the healthy food trend, so I mean can’t complain at all.
But this is not all, the city is beautiful, their architecture is unbelievable, I was always walking looking to the buildings and all that mix between old, fashion, and modern architecture.
I had 4 amazing days there, which I’ll be happily sharing with you now.
If you want to get straight to the point, here you canget my Google Mapswith all the main attractions conveniently marked for you.
Keep reading if you would also like an overview of these attractions.
Mercado de La Boqueria In case you’re a foodie like me, this is THE place to be. Stroll along a good number of stalls featuring local products and produce.
When I decided to go to Spain last year, I was sure I wanted to visit one of those Medieval Spanish cities. Then after some research, I found Girona, and for my surprise, this wasn’t any medieval city, THIS WAS THE CITY WHERE GAME OF THRONES WAS FILMED! Yep, all in caps so I make my message very clear. lol
If I’m not mistaken most of all season 6 was filmed there. You get scenes from Bravos, Oldtown and Kings Landing. It was fantastic to stroll through all the streets and lanes from this place and remember of scenes from the show. You can check here my Google Maps with the main spots, plus some extra historical sites that Girona has.
What we did then
Plaça de la Independència
Very pleasant space on your way to the Medieval city, with many restaurants and cafes around. Perfect for a quick coffee before you go and explore the city.
Zeus Street Greek is a recurrent choice for me. Meals are super yum, quick to get, with affordable prices and very well sized portions!
I often get a pita for take away, or my favourite: Spartan Box (what a meal!!!). But they are also a gorgeous place to have your meal in, service is always amazing and I simply love the young-ish and modern atmosphere.
Another thing I love about this place is that you can easily find them in different cities around Australia! Can’t count how many times I was saved by them while traveling. 😀
As I said, I often go there but for this blog purpose I decided to register only one of our meals. This is usually what we have:
To share: Dips – Tzatziki, Beetroot Hummus, and Smoky Eggplant with pita bread.
Mine: Spartan box with chicken, seasonal salad, smoky eggplant, and pilaf rice.
There is a huge variety of pitas, dips, and sides. But for me, the best meal is always the Spartan Box. You can create your own and I love this kind of stuff. Pick a type of meat, 2 different sides, and a dressing. Simply perfect.
