BarcelonaFun, sun and a city you never want to leave...
Barcelona is a perfect destination year-round. And the traditional Catalonian cuisine is rich in gluten-free variations
Everybody knows: when it comes to fun, music, fashion and a sparkling nightlife, the city of Barcelona tops all the rest. In the last several decades, the Catalonian capital has reinvented itself. Just 20 years ago, access to the beach was barred by industrial plants, and Barcelona was considered a "city that turned its back on the sea". With its transformation for the Olympic Games in 1992, a process got under way that has turned Barcelona into one of the most dynamic and trendy cities in the world.
It is a metropolis with a hundred faces
: the eccentric constructions of Gaudi are a must for connoisseurs of architecture, while art lovers will find it hard to choose between the collections in the Picasso and Miró museums. For those who prefer to shop until they drop, for those who enjoy relaxing in the bars or on the beaches, Barcelona is the ideal place to go. And make sure to keep your strength up so you can enjoy the famous, wild night life, but don’t forget: in Barcelona everything starts a couple of hours later than everywhere else
, so if you want to make it through the long night, take it easy and try to get a slow start...
The Catalonian cuisine is rich in fruit, vegetables, sea food and fresh shell fish, which meets the needs of coeliacs
in the most natural way. Many restaurants and hotels offer gluten-free dishes
. "Soy alergico al gluten"
is what to say to let the waiter know you are affected by coeliac disease, while "sin gluten"
on the packages of food and on the menus indicated gluten-free choices.
