Happy Tuesday! I am finally home safe and sound after another week of traveling and am anxious to share my newest experiences with you 🙂 This post is the continuation of my last post when Nicolas and I visited Barcelona. If you missed it, you can read it here and see what we did during our first morning in this beautiful city! http://breakfastatmadisons.com/a-day-in-barcelona
After a much needed afternoon nap, Nicolas and I headed out to further explore the city. Barcelona is famous for its churros, so we were very determined to try some! We ended up at Churreria Laietana. It was one of the tiniest and coziest cafés I have ever been to. On TripAdvisor, it is rated #1 out of 176 cafés for coffee and tea in Barcelona as well as #8 out of 8,272 places to eat! We both agreed that the coffee was delicious and bold and the churros (freshly fried and doused in sugar) were amazing.
Afterwards, we took a walk through the Gothic Quarter which is the center of the oldest part of the city. Some of the buildings date back to medieval times and are absolutely breathtaking. We also saw several La Senyera and L’Estelada flags. Many residents hang these Catalan flags outside their windows, adorning the streets of Barcelona.
Stay tuned for another Barcelona post coming soon! Thanks for stopping by again. 🙂
