Barcelona Arenas: From Bullring To Cash Cow

The Arenas Bullring, Barcelona’s iconic structure, once again felt the roar of the crowd and the tremble of footsteps upon its historic sands this year. However, no bull or matador was present. The bullring has been officially reborn as an entertainment complex. Arenas now houses 115 shops, a cinema and Barcelona’s brand […]

Speaking Easy, Eating Clandestinely In Barcelona

Clandestine dining finds its roots in the United States back in the Jazz days of the ’30s. During prohibition, illegal bars in the country flourished and became known as speakeasies, a term coined from bar owners having to admonish loud, drunken customers when they became too rowdy by asking them […]

I’m Not Sad To See Bullfighting Go In Spain

Sidetracked In The Pyrenees

Shifting into fourth gear I started to wonder if the world was coming to an end. The ray of sunshine shadowing my car had gone, suddenly replaced by a large black cloud that loomed almost directly over head. A shot of lightning streaked across the horizon followed by an earth-shattering boom. The […]

Mercat de Santa Caterina: Barcelona’s Best Untouristy Market

As anyone who has visited La Boqueria knows, the famed market in Barecelona located just off Las Ramblas is not just one of the city’s most well-known destinations, but also one of its most touristy. Sure, if you get there around 5 a.m. before the visitors wake up, you’ll likely […]

Images Of Barcelona

Barcelona is probably better suited than most cities in the world to be described in images rather than words. Save for some technology that could transport the smells of an early-morning market or send the rays of warmth one experiences sipping sangria in a sunny plaza in the late afternoon, […]

Barcelona Food: Worth Waiting Up Late To Eat

Is it me or do you notice how there seems to be an onslaught of articles published about a destination you’re traveling to just before you go? I understand, this is completely unscientific, irrational, and probably a tad ego-centric to think this, but I swear, there are some sort of […]
