Foodie & Traveler

Discover the gastronomic treasures that Barcelona hides, from its traditional tapas to its most avant-garde restaurants.


Welcome to Barcelona, ​​lovers of good food and tireless explorers! I’m Lucas , your passionate host, and I’ve prepared a 3-day experience for you that combines the city’s rich food scene with fascinating local discoveries. Be ready for an experience that will captivate your senses and allow you to immerse yourself in the authentic Barcelona! 🥳


Welcome to Barcelona! I am your host and in this experience I am going to recommend my favorite restaurants and places in the city so that you can get to know Barcelona. Before starting, I recommend that if the third day is a Sunday, you start with day three first and leave day one for the third day. This way you can visit all the planned places. 🙂

To maintain that traveler essence we will move away from that central and iconic part of Barcelona. Therefore, as a way to begin the experience, I recommend visiting the upper neighborhoods of the city, specifically we will move through the Les Corts district, it is the third smallest neighborhood in the city but it is charming.

As a way to start the day by delighting our senses of sight and taste, I recommend having breakfast at ¡Oh Mommy a brunch restaurant located in the center of Les Corts. I could define this place with one word: delightful.

After this feast, we begin our adventure and to do so we will move to the Cervantes Park located in Pedralbes. It is synonymous with peace and beauty. In Cervantes Park you can breathe fresh air and in the company of its rose gardens, its grass areas and its vegetation it is like a green lung within the Pedralbes neighborhood.

I recommend spending the morning here, but if the traveler spirit drives you to do more, I have more recommendations for you 🙂

On the one hand, the Gardens of the Pedralbes Palace a place with landscaped gardens and fountains, and the garden is crowned by a historic palace. This Garden will be an ideal place to end our tour by heading to the Camp Nou , a great international symbol of the city of Barcelona.

I recommend going down Carrer de Marti i Franquès, to soak up the atmosphere that is lived and felt in Pedralbes, one of the best neighborhoods in Barcelona.

I recommend you visit the field facilities and its surroundings. To finish, I recommend eating at The Turuleca, a Peruvian gastronomy restaurant with dishes with a lot of color and a lot of flavor. A gastronomy very well criticized by the international media. Your essentials are the ceviche with the famous tiger’s milk and its sautéed loin 😋

In the afternoon I recommend something more central and that is why you can take a walk along Passeig de Gracia and see its most iconic buildings, ( La Pedrera and Casa Batlló ) with Casa Batlló I recommend looking at it from the Servicio Estación building , where you can see the back of the building and it is a little-known place.

Near La Pedrera I recommend you go to the Massimo Dutti store which is located in a modernist building with a garden inside. Then go to Plaza Cataluña and finish walking along Las Ramblas. Over there eat at the restaurant gutters. In the middle of Las Ramblas it is Ale-Hop , entering is another modernist palace.

Now with a full belly you can go to the Cathedral Square and stop for a photo at the “The Kiss” mural. Continue along Via Laietana to the port and walk along the Moll de Fusta, just in front of the port. Walk until you reach the Columbus Statue and from here go to the Barceló Raval Hotel, is 11 minutes walking. Its rooftop has spectacular 360º views where it is incredible to see the sunset, and this is where you can end the day, but if you prefer it to be a place of passage, you can end up in El Nacional with a glass of cava.


Today we will start in Eixample, and we will go to the Urgell stop on L1 of the Barcelona metro. Once here we had breakfast at Eixampeling is a happy and colorful cafe where we can surround ourselves with the best vibes, and then head to Plaza España and enjoy Montjuic.

Inside Montjuic there are too many things to see, so it will take us all morning. Some of my recommendations are the following: Historical Botanical Garden, just behind the imposing National Museum of Art of Catalonia. Admission is free, I describe the place as one of those hidden corners in Barcelona, ​​that little is known about and apart from the place itself which is super beautiful, the fact that it is little known gives it its charm.

At the end we headed to the Greek Theater Gardens , an essential place where you will find a mini amphitheater worth visiting.

From here I recommend eating in a privileged place in Barcelona, ​​little known if you don’t frequent the area, is the Restaurant Òleum located inside the Museum. From start to finish it is quite an experience. And the atmosphere lends itself to it, what better than eating inside a museum. In case you want to have another option, mine is Bodega Amposta , a little further away but excellent in terms of quality-price, it is also a cozy restaurant.

In the afternoon I propose the Gràcia neighborhood, a neighborhood with a special atmosphere with a much more rural past, breathing its Catalan spirit and its more street culture. It is considered a town within a city.

The afternoon is focused on cultural elements and symbols of the Gràcia neighborhood. Our first point of reference will be the Residential building by Mario Català Nebot , in the beginning no one understood him, but with the passage of time his creations have become an object of worship with psychedelic windows and wavy shapes. Many Barcelonans call it the Barcelona pool.

Then we will go to Passeig de Sant Joan, here we will find two sculptures with symbolism, on the one hand the Little Red Riding Hood Fountain, is a curious bronze image from 1921. It shows an empowered Little Red Riding Hood as if she had subdued the Wolf. A few meters away we find The Fountain of Hercules , they say it is one of the oldest statues in Barcelona, ​​it was inaugurated in 1802 and was built to celebrate the wedding and visit of King Charles IX.

And from here we head to Plaza del Sol emblematic and meeting place of the Gràcia neighborhood, ideal for a place to pause while enjoying the sunrise of Barcelona. What better than to put yourself on the scene and go to Coffee of the sun, its most legendary bar. In addition, there are modernist style buildings in its surroundings.

To finish dinner in Nüa, a futuristic and healthy restaurant that I love. And to end the day a cocktail at Marcelino 1968 .


Good morning! For this day I have thought of something vintage… for them we will have to go to Glòries, this on L1 of the Barcelona metro. In the area have breakfast in Wapa Barcelona Restaurant , is next to the Agbar Tower and is a quiet place to start the day.

Once ready we will go to one of the largest second-hand markets in Barcelona. Is he Mercat dels Encants, it is very curious to see and you will find a lot of curiosities. There is always something good to see.

If you still want more, a little further away you will find Petits Encants , in Arc del Triomf, an antique store with a large number of curiosities.

And eat at Elsa and Fred where you can make the menu of the day for 15 euros or order à la carte. A cozy restaurant with grilled dishes.

In the afternoon our destination is Barcelona. A good morning starts with a delicious brunch facing the sea in The Cala (Barceloneta). After touring the Maritime ride by bike, there is a place called Rent Bike BCN located in Barceloneta or Online Bike Rental located in El Born, where you can rent a bike to enjoy the experience and take a tour around El Born and discover its corners.

Another option is to go to Torre de Jaime I – Teleférico del Puerto de Barcelona and enjoy the views and good weather of Barcelona.

To eat, Xampanyet is one of the usual bars that I like, otherwise you can Rooster & Bubbles with a more modern touch.

Enjoy Barcelona!
