Fiestas, gastronomy and architecture are the three keys that will help you to enjoy Barcelona as though you had lived here all your life.

Barcelona keeps its high level of activities during the whole year, but, during summer, coinciding with the fiestas of some of its districts is much easier.

During these fiestas, all families in the neighborhood work in the organization and in the celebration. For this reason, if you are looking for typical elements of the popular Catalan culture -sardanes, grallers, giants, music…-, in these fiestas, you will find them.

During the next weeks we will announce them.

Gastronomy is another one of the essentials keys, in order to get to know the culture and, in addition, this is one of the best pleasures which we can access easily. In Barcelona, walking through the narrow streets in the center, at the Gòtic or the Born, at the port or, even, in other neighborhoods like Gracia or Sants-full of pedestrian streets and squares- we will be surrounded by restaurants and bars, where we will be able to eat some tapas -Spanish appetizers.

Finally, architecture, the one which we can find walking at the street level, is the key that has converted Barcelona into the most important modernist city. You shouldn’t miss that.

The best of all of this is that you can achieve all these key points while you are riding your bike placidly around the city.

Spring has arrived, and it is the best season to move around through Barcelona by bicycle

March 20th, 2017

This Monday, the 2017’s spring has started and, in addition to the activities and the good mood which accompanies these days, the perfect temperature to pedal through the streets of Barcelona has also arrived.

It’s the 20th of March, the first day of spring and, an inevitable coincidence, the International Happiness’s Day. It seems that seeing how the streets flower, the new smells and the good weather without scorchers can raise spirits even in the case of the grumpiest people.

And, what is directly related to happiness? The movement and the energy. It’s not a matter of chance that the good mood and sports walk hand in hand. The more we move around, the better we feel, and the better we feel, the more we want to do things. It is a feedback which, during this season, make us to get up from the sofa and propel us to get to know new and old places in different ways.

So, we have specialized ourselves in this sector, the sector of the good vibes which make us feel lively. For this reason, we cannot stop recommending you that it’s so important to take advantage of this shove from the spring and rediscover Barcelona pedaling your bike through its streets. For us, this is the best therapy for mind and body.
