When in Barcelona, you kind of become a BIG fan of the Futbol Club Barcelona or – B a r ç a by default (in my case – willingly).
Booze-wise, among many others – cava (Catalan Champagneis) is something you just don’t miss when you are in Barcelona.
The most awesome way to drink cava in Barcelona is in one of the city’s cult Xampanyerias – the Can Paixano (best known as La Champañería, near Barceloneta beach) and the El Xampanyet (near the Picasso Museum). (I think I might have had three trips too many to both of them). Sure you can happily squeeze these two in your itinerary. Don’t say I didn’t tell you.
PS: useful phrase: una botella de cava más por favor
