...because on St Jordi Day, the Town Hall is open...

... and it is very impressive,  imbedded with the history of Barcelona.  It is not only a day of books and roses (and kinghts slaying dragons! Every Dia de St Jordi, (23 April) the Ayuntamiento  and Generalitat open their doors to the public. It is well worth the visit (although I didn't find my knight in shining armour there!!)

...because of Martinez on Montjuic....

Martinez Restaurante, situated on Montjuic, is definitely the fanciest chiringuito in town.  From the deck outside where you can have a drink and play fussball to the fun but sophisticated restaurant inside that serves a delicious paella accompanied by a breath taking view over Barcelona.

...because Vegemite was lost, but now has been found again...

 ...thanks to shared information, a store that sells Vegemite in Barcelona has been located.  And not only do they sell Vegemite, also Marmite, TimTams, Baked Beans and even meat pies.  I love Spanish food but sometimes it is nice treat to have a Taste of Home!
