..because of the best Barceloneta bakery...Baluard....

 Baluard bakery, a Barceloneta institution that bakes the best bread in the barrio (neighbourhood) - as seen by the queue that it always has! Artesinal bread, pastries and bocadillos that are worth the wait!

UN BESO: Baluard,  Carrer del Baluart, 38, X
Also at Carrer de Provença, 279.

...because of 'diada de Sant Jordi'.....





...definitely one of my favourite days of the year in Barcelona! The day of the Rose and the Book! Give a girl a rose and a boy a book.  The Day of Love! And a day to fall in love with Barcelona again! 

Feliç Diada de Sant Jordi!

...because of Cala de Vermut.......





...a new discovery but an old and enchanting gem. This little friendly, family run tapas and vermut bar is located close to the busy centre but yet tucked away in a quiet side street nearby. It has vermut on tap, a delicious selection of fresh tapas and some charming Costa Brava wall murals which all make for a unique and recomendable tapas experience.

UN BESO: Cala de Vermut,
Carrer de les Magdalenes, 6

...because of beautiful Baqueira.....



....Baqueira Beret, the white Winter wonderland just 3,5hours from Barcelona in the Vall d'Aran. Picturesque medieval pueblos, 3 mountains full of snow to ski and the perfect en-piste place to rest- the Moet Winter Lounge.

...because of the wonderful water fountains.....





...once upon time when there was not running water connected in every house, water was collected from various sources around the city. Over time some of these fountains were built to be quite beautiful and continue to be used today.  Many of the iron ones dating from the late 19th century.

Of course, maybe the most famous one is the Canaletes Fountain on Ramblas- legend says that if you drink from this one, you will fall in love with Barcelona and return.  It is also where Barça fans go to celebrate any victory!

....because of the little shop of restoration, ViraVolta....


...ViraVolta, a place where furniture is given a new life - by you or by the team. You can buy something restored or take to the workshop yourself and resurrect your own piece - a perfect space, especially for those who don't have it at home. A charming little store filled with vintage treasures. 

UN BESO: ViraVolta, Carrer d'En Monec, 5,
