Barcelona: Carrer Montcada

September 1, 2013

Placed in Born, it is one of the most popular street in this zone. Taking a walk across this street, you can find a lot of cultural and gastronomic offers, and Gothic Palaces.

Museo Picasso (Montcada St.15-23): placed in five old medieval castles, includes a complete collection of Picasso’s pictures, from all the ages of the artist. Remember there are some days of free entrance, as Night of Museums. There is modern bar inside the museum, but, in front of it, there is an old palace with a bar in the courtyard to have a drink in a quite atmosphere.

Palau Dalmases (Montcada St.20): a baroque palace,, with an important cultural history, where you can find artworks and antiques and hear classic music,,jazz, flamenco,opera,etc. (see http://www.palaudalmases.com/biography.htm). If you go at night, the main door is closed, but a kind of butler opens it a little bit to invite you to enter in a “secret” way. You can have a drink there, but it is not very cheap.

Euskal Etxea (Placeta Montcada 1): original Basque tapas and phantastic txakolí (white wine). There are concerts and cultural activities too.

El Xampanyet (Montcada St.22): usually plenty, it is a traditional bar of tapas. The “xampanyet” is a soft and sweet cava served in the classic French champagne, but there you can have a cup of wine or beer.
