Located in a historical building in the bustling Plaza Real, Café restaurant Taxidermista offers seasonal cooking. The building was previously a natural science museum and taxidermy workshop although it also served as an air raid shelter during the Civil War. The remains of the convent from before the Plaza was built are still preserved in the basement. The atmosphere is cosmopolitan and the clientele includes artists, designers and architects. Taxidermista has preserved many of the original features and organises plenty of cultural activities that mean it is much more than just a restaurant. In addition to the interesting menu, it offers a variety of excellent tapas made from excellent ingredients.
Staying in Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
