It is a classic tavern, of all life. The sandwiches and tapas are not very big but they are very good and at a good price. It's always very full, don't expect to be accommodated, it's to stand and eat at the bar.

The most visited market in Barcelona is without a doubt La Boqueria, the first market to open in the city. If you’re looking to experiment the daily life of locals, nothing comes as close as visiting the Barcelona city markets. They’re bright, colorful, busy and noisy places, and in most of them you can find practically any product you can imagine.

From grilled squid to butifarras, asparagus, prawns, ham or Galician octopus. You'll start by covering the dish and you'll be sure to stay for lunch. The hard part about going to Ramon Bar can be finding a table, since it is small and very crowded (a lot!). But it's worth the wait. Although you can always cure yourself in health and book in advance.

In its "Eating cool zone", you will be able to taste its Tapeo as well as its specialties in Crêpes or its menu of Mediterranean and market cuisine. Its quiet terrace, away from the commercial bustle, is one of the only in Barcelona that offers a pleasant climate, thanks to the breeze that circulates in the summer months, will allow you to rest from shopping by sipping both a soft drink or a good wine as one of its great cocktails. Both the music you will listen to and the attentive and international staff will assure you a pleasant moment while you eat, drink, work or rest.

If your stay in Barcelona is not too short, take advantage and visit! Historically, it has been one of the most representative places of Catalan identity. The main attraction of the mountains in addition to the curious form of mountain range of its mountains would be, the monastery dedicated to the Mare de Deu de Montserrat built in the eleventh century. Enclave both of monks with a collected and reflexive life, as well as of pilgrims with different purposes for the virgin. https://www.tripadvisor.es/Attraction_Review-g187501-d191040-Reviews-Montserrat_Monastery-Montserrat_Catalonia.html

15' walking from the house! Diagonal Mar is the second largest park in Barcelona. It is an immense and sunny space, diaphanous, absolutely accessible, where the water of a large lake shares protagonism with hills covered with grass and exuberant vegetation. The Diagonal Mar park extends with a design that favours mixing with the city through a large, diaphanous space, which at the end connects with the sea. The park is ordered following a series of paths that, like a tree, branch out in all directions. Everywhere, very long concrete benches separate and order the spaces evoking the waves of the sea, and they acquire the shape of these paths and the contours of various squares.

From Sant Jaume Square, take Llibreteria street and you will reach Plaça del Rei. This is one of the most charming streets in Barcelona, but because of its location it is a bit hidden, and often goes unnoticed by tourists. Here are concentrated many historic buildings of the Middle Ages that are part almost all of the Royal Palace Mayor, which was once the residence and seat of government of the counts of Barcelona and the kings of Aragon.

The new Born has been structured in two levels. The first, below ground, where you can visit and walk among the ruins of 1714. And, a second, at the foot of street that will be passable longitudinally. This space becomes a public square where you can move freely during the day. This is a free public access route that aims to recover the open character of the old market.
