Coros de Barceloneta – The original street party

The "Coros de Barceloneta" in Barcelona is one of the oldest and by definition most authentic festivities you can find.

Balius – Excellent cocktails

"Balius" Barcelona is a cocktail bar I've had great experience with, even though they're not my thing. I love the refreshingly unpretentious atmosphere...

Blu Bar – Chilled café to peoplewatch

"Blu Bar" in Barcelona is close enough to Rambla Poblenou that it's not far away from the buzz, but I love that it's a spot I can read the newspaper...

Rambla Poblenou – The street cafe life

"Rambla Poblenou" in Barcelona is the main wide pedestrian street in this neighborhood. It's a mix of local & touristic but it's a great place to hang out.

Mariá Aguiló street – Hang out with the locals

"Mariá Aguiló street" offers a glimpse into the heart and soul of a traditional Barcelona barri. I like to amble through the shops and the maze of streets.

Poblenou Cemetery – People are dying to go there

"Poblenou Cemetery" in Barcelona is a captivating necropolis. I find the catalogue of Neoclassical and Neogothic-style mausoleums the most fascinating...

Sala Beckett – Walk this way for theatre

"Sala Beckett" in Barcelona is a cutting-edge theatre in Poblenou. I like watching plays in Catalan here. There's also a bar-restaurant downstairs!

Tinta Roja – Theatre bar with great atmosphere

"Tinta Roja" in Barcelona isn't just an Argentinian bar to hang out for a drink: it's a meeting point for the city's English-speaking improv comedy scene!

About me

About me
I was born in Caracas, lived most of my life in London, also spent some time in Buenos Aires and Leeds, and finally moved to Barcelona in 2011. My passions are good food, reading, films and filmmaking, family and family history, and Barcelona.

Why Barcelona?
What I love about Barcelona is that I find new things in it to be amazed by all the time. It's a city that is constantly renewing itself but still manages to retain its sense of tradition, music festivals that bring the world together into one spot, to people in my neighborhood who take the time to greet you in the street and ask after your health. Barcelona retains its soul as the Roman port city where all peoples and civilizations meet and rub up against each other in constant flux. I couldn't live anywhere else.
