Where to go In Barcelona?

Ok you bought some plane tickets to Barcelona, and you want to get the most of your stay.

You have come to the right place, I am from Barcelona like Manuel( Faulty Towers), and I am going to introduce you to the real city, far far away from the tourist places that only want your money and doesn't reflect the real Catalonia.

Remember Barcelona is in Catalonia as Edinburgh is in Scotland , and Dublin is in Ireland, not Spain.

During the Day

L'ovella Negra.

This Tavern is a bit tricky, It is open all day and closes very late a night, so you could use it as a night bar but because they serve food I thought it will be good in this section.
I used to go there when I was a student, now is full of tourists and is great because the interaction is amazing, I always end up talking to some guys or girls from Sweden, Norway etc, but still have good prices good food and a crazy atmosphere during the night, jugs and jugs of sangria, around 12 euro per a 2 litre jug.

Bosc de les Fades.(Barrio Gotico)

Romantic, mystic and magic, Bosc de les fades means, forest of the fairies, and is like a museum, tree tables, fairies floating around, nice coffee a bit pricey but is worth it.
