“A street in central Barcelona, popular with tourists and locals alike. A tree-lined pedestrian mall, it stretches for 1.2 kilometres connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with Colombus statue.”

Seafood Restaurant
“It's a quite curious restaurant: it looks like a fish shop when you get in, so you can choose only the fish and seafood they fished that day. After you choose, they cook it and serve it. There are a few of this, one in El Born, another close to La Sagrada Família and a few others scattered around the city. The food is very good and the experience quite unique.”

“Yes, a breakfast menu is easier to master than dinner. In which case, you want to go to the place that is the master of the masters - this is the spot. Affordable, friendly staff, and great food! Note: every time I have been, the wait time has been around 20mins.”

Café
“In Spanish “granja” means farm, and in Barcelona a trip to Granja M. Viader means you’re in for a chocolate treat. At Granja M. Viader, guests can order up churros and melted chocolate, a classic Spanish treat. Granja M. Viader isn’t just a sweet shop. It’s also a historic site, dating back to the mid 1800s when it did in fact operate as a farm in Barcelona. If it’s a hot day and warm thick chocolate sounds too intense, try one of the milkshakes. They’re just as thick the melted chocolate but will still cool you off.”
