CALLE ENRIQUE GRANADOS

Just behind Plaza Universidad, it is a very typical Eixample street, with many amazing places to eat, have a drink... you need to look up all the time to see the beauty of those buildings, if you want to have a coffee or eat something, I do recommend, Cafe Cosmo, Flamant, Taverna Miu and Brunch & Cake

BUNKER DEL CARMELO

Located at the top of Rovira in the Carmel barrio, Bunker del Carmelo is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon with your friends or your couple, If you are an early bird, sunrise is spectacular. *The closest metro stop is Alfons X (L4, yellow) and from then on you can either walk or take a bus for two stops.

BARRIO GOTICO

PLAZA DEL PI @ Barrio Gótico, find your way there, using your map, take a sit in one of the terraces and find your way out.... time to explore by yourself! and PLAZA DEL REY @ Barrio Gótico , look for it, easy to find and many beautiful ways to get there, just taking the right side of the cathedral, if you are lucky you will find a street opera singer, they are usually there, and keep walking till you find it, on the way, you should find La Basilica, the most beautiful contemporary jewel shop in Barcelona. And last but no less, his is probably my N1 and not easy to find, give ir a go... behind the cathedral, look for Plaza de Garriga y Bachs, take a small street named Montjuic del Bisbe and you will get to a magic small square that not many people know,  PLAZA DE SAN FELIPE NERI, but when the get there, they just love it, the unique Hotel Neri will be an easy tip to get there, in summer time they have a terrace, have a coffee, and enjoy the silence..
