Vivacious, ambitious, industrious: Barcelona is second to none
This cool, cosmopolitan metropolis is the bastion of Catalan nationalism and one of the greatest port cities on the Mediterranean. Barcelona’s distinct culture finds exuberant expression in its architecture – in the sinuous swirls of its Modernista buildings, in the other-worldly weirdness of Park Güell and in the soaring spires of the Sagrada Família. A stroll along the Rambla, Barcelona’s famed promenade, reveals a city of irrepressible energy and a proud and unique identity.
Laid back bar with a tropical feel
El Fortuny is a whimsical venue, done up in a distinctly tropical motif. The postmodern bar also has a welcoming neighborhood feel, making it a good stop for having a drink or two in the afternoon or evening. You’ll also find plenty of pop art and other artistic collections.
Located in the Raval area, El Fortuny is surrounded by plenty of cafes and bars. As the building used to be an actual bodega, you’ll notice the wine barrels still inside. The food served at Bar Bodega Fortuny is also worth a try, as the menu items typically come straight from the market and are prepared with a good mix of Mediterranean influences.
