Alberto

EatWith Host

It all started in my house, when I spent hours and hours watching my mother kneading and preparing delicious dishes. It was then decided that I would enter the world of gastronomy: first in Galicia where I worked in simple places for travelers to discover Spanish traditions. And then I came to Barcelona to test my potential. In the city that has the best restaurants in the world, I’m looking to improve my techniques every day and invite people from all over the world to test my creations.

The best things are free

Barcelona can be a very expensive destination, if you don't book your stay in time, and if you are looking for a central, or beach front hotel. Fortunately, there are budget options, and some of the best things in the city are still free. You can admire the city's modernist architecture free of charge, and enjoying the beaches is free as well.
