Cubics, Santa Coloma
This hotel/apartment/entertainment centre project really is one of the most misplaced architectural projects in the greater Barcelona. The entrance to the cinema looks like a parking entrance with an inclination steep enough to preventing those with weaker legs from ever leaving the premises. The buildings are completely "dead" with the appearance of lego pieces dropped by some gargantuan child from above. The height naturally adds to the whole "out of placedness" of the bui [..]

In Catalonia a worryingly large number of drivers seem to drive with two demons on each shoulder: Incompetence & Recklessness.
One can make a list of typical driving errors and tick of every box when observing traffic here during longer drives. The most dangerous being overtaking other cars and the most inopportune times and places. Here is a typical example from a narrow mountain road.

Today, May 27th 2011, there was a demonstration at Plaza Catalunya, Barcelona. This is a result of many young people in Spain feeling "robbed of a future" with the unemployment rate being as high as 40% for the young. The po

La Candela, C/ Sant Pere Mitjà, 93.
A tapas restaurant located on a charming square in Sant Pere. We actually never got to taste the food here as we were turned off my the sourly demeanor of the waitress. Yes, we know that you are overworked

In Catalonia, despite being the first region to ban bull-fighting, the practice of Correbous still goes on. The generalitat (parliament) recently decided (114 to 14) that setting bulls on fire

An English(mainly) language used bookstore in the middle of Grácia (C/Monteseny 17). Nice selection of Hunter Thompson books as befitting the bohemian setting. But, there is a little of everything here for a decent price.

The Mercat de L'Abaceria, Barcelona´s ugliest market?
Somehow the city council, in their furor to "upgrade" Barcelona forgot about this market in Grácia - ramshackle and grey it has a rather sad and resigned air about it. It is worth visiting when

This prison like structure might not be the ugliest in Barcelona, but the idea of building this tall in the Barceloneta area just opposite the classic Estació França is ludicrous!

Thre is nothing wrong with this bar located in the chic El Born barrio, but 11 for a (small) double scotch!? That is five times the sell price in the stores....C'mon guys this is Barcelona, not Tokyo! The choice of music didn't help either, alltho

"Okupas" (house occupants, squatters) or "atheists" are a regular fixture in Barcelona, always wearing their uniforms of non-conformity; nose-piercings, dreads, beads etc. The irony of uniformingly signalling your independence to a uniform consumer s

Renting holiday apartments in Barcelona can be a challenge. For the short-term visitor we recommend: Acomodis - Barcelona Vacation Apartments. This is an official agency with an appealing portfolio of centrally located apartments. As a bonus you can

Tapas restaurant by The Santa Caterina Market. We were three diners and the staff barely acknowledged our arrival. After the food arrived we had to plead for cutlery, one piece at a time - delivered by a barely audible grunt from "the waiter". The fo

Friendly service, nice informal setting. Very tasty food, inventive without being showy (or silly). Excellent value for money!
