Barcelona Precincts: A Curated Guide to the City's Best Shops, Eateries, Bars and Other Hangouts
Barcelona Precincts offers a curated list of the very best places to shop, eat and drink in Barcelona's 12 hottest precincts, including Born, Raval, the Gothic quarter, Eixample and the old fishermen's quarter of Barceloneta. A 'While you're here' section also covers major sights and attractions in each precinct.
From Picasso to Hemingway, Gaudi to Dali, this ever-varying city has played muse to many great creators in the past and the contemporary arts scene continues to thrive. Fashion-forward boutiques and independent ateliers sit alongside vintage design shops.
Gastronomy plays a major role in the city, and you'll find everything from trendy brunch spots and Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional tapas bars serving rustic mountain dishes and seafood. Catalonia's ten official wine regions supply a tempting array of wine bars and bodegas, while the booming craft beer scene will rouse even the most hardcore of hopheads. There is also the 5-kilometre stretch of glorious city beaches, where you can take a gentle stroll along the boardwalk, stopping for cocktails at one of the sandy `chiringuitos' (beach bars).
Maps, suggested itineraries and transport information make this a hard-working guidebook, while the award-winning design and fabulous location photography ensure it is a wonderful keepsake of your visit.
