Beer in Barcelona
There is a growing movement in Barcelona that features an everyday item so common that most people didn’t even notice the movement began: beer.

But beer has always been a big part of the culture as well. Sitting on a patio or in a...

Santa Maria del Mar
As you may or may not know already, much of the gothic architecture in Barcelona is in fact Neo-Gothic, which is to say, a revival of the medieval style in the 1740s.
