...because of an old little bodega called La Tinaja...

... tucked away in El Born, hidden behind a little wooden door, is a this old style bodega, overflowing with artifacts and ambience.  The food is country style tapas, serving the pan con tomate that you prepare yourself. Delicous, friendly and cosy.

...because of the artisinal Gallery Market...

About once a month, there is a fashionable little market at the Gallery Hotel, put on by Barcelona Events & Markets. There are artisinal fashion stalls, a wine bar, a jazz singer/DJ and a cool vibe.  There really is also something for everyone (my friends and I found!).
The next one is on the 21/22 November (just in time for Christmas shopping), and if you don't want a shop, it is a nice place to stop for a wine.

...because of the very picturesque Calella de Palafrugell....

 ...1.5 hours north of Barcelona, situated on the Costa Brava is the very picturesque little beachside  pueblo of Calella de Palafrugell.  Quiet, peaceful and scenic, it also has one of my favourite restaurants in the world.. Restaurant Fiego. Located on the beach and serving paella and fideua while your barefeet rest in the sand. Bliss!
