A Vista d'Hotel

For one week some of Barcelona’s best hotels open their rooftop terraces to the public, serving special menus and hosting events just for the occasion. So it’s a great opportunity to see Barcelona from a different angle, and, while enjoying the views, sample some of the activities on offer, which range from concerts, magic shows and chill-out sessions to cocktail workshops, wine tastings and cooking master classes.

Mercat de Mercats

The ‘Market of Markets’ is a gastronomic fair that brings together food and wine producers from all over Catalonia. The stalls are arranged in front of the Cathedral, and a €12 ticket allows you to choose four tapas from whichever stalls you like, while €10 gets you four small glasses of wine or cava (plus you get to keep the glass). Some 30 market stalls, 50 local food producers, 12 of the city’s bars and restaurants, and 16 wineries took part in last year’s edition. Amateur chefs should note that they can get great tips on how to perfect their dishes from world-renowned Catalan chefs. It’s a weekend that offers the chance to discover and taste the products sold in the markets, enjoy a variety of tapas and wines and get to know the gastronomy of Catalonia much better.
