Very good restaurant near Mercado de La Boqueria. They offer traditional Spanish dishes, and especially want to recommend Bacalao, garlic shrimps and the exclusive Chorizo sausages. We visited it at dinner and the account for 6 people was under 100 euros.

Chicken paella was the best I’ve had in my stay, price is moderate. And the place serves halal food which is a plus. Also the fried Brie was really delicious and the Ceaser salad was also great.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble

that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
