We arrived in Barcelona to a chilly 2 degrees. Cold and bleak, but with very few tourists, Barcelona in winter is a different city to the Barcelona of summer. First stop the Mercat Boqueria on Las Ramblas for bocadillos for lunch and fresh fruits for breakfast. Next stop our favorite bar, La Vinya del Senyor, for a glass of the local Cava.
Day 2, wandering around – La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi´s masterpiece, still under construction.
Saturday, a train 40k to Vilafranca del Penedés and Sant Sadurni, centres of Spain´s Cava (sparkling wine) production where we tried the local speciality – Gallo Negro (Black Rooster) for lunch – delicious.
