Subway or taxi to Can Majo in Barceloneta?

by aznaphrodite

I'm thinking of going to Can Majo in Barceloneta for lunch. Our hotel is on Las Ramblas near Plaça de Catalunya. Is Can Majo pretty walkable from the Barceloneta subway station or am I better off taking a taxi? Is it pretty easy to catch a taxi from the restraurant to go back?

Also, how long do you estimate a paella lunch will take? I'm trying to figure out how much sightseeing we can get in after lunch.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Just answered your question on Tripadvisor. Its very walkable from the metro station, its about half mile.

As for how long? How long does any lunch in a restaurant take? It shouldn't be significantly different. It is true that lunch can be a leisurely affair but that is down to the participants rather than the service.

Its very walkable. I was in Barcelona in May and walked in that area. You will not need a taxi. VT member Belsaita is very helpful with questions on Barcelona. You might want to drop her an email if you have any questions.

Placa de Catalunya is about four blocks from Barceloneta. When you get to Barceloneta check out the Electric Bar. Its a very small little place where the locals hangout that makes their own wine and other liquors.

Hi,

Sorry but Placa de Catalunya is not 4 blocks from Barceloneta, it is about a mile. Did the previous poster mean 4 'stops' on the metro? It is actually 3 stops but you have to change lines. You would actually be better walking the short distance (1 block) from Catalunya to Placa d'Urquinaona and getting the yellow line for 2 stops to Barceloneta.

Belsaita here! ;-)))

Yes it's more than 4 blocks from Pl. Catalunya to Barceloneta. But it's walkable and actually can be a very nice walk: down Las Ramblas and the seafront, maybe 45 min walking at a leisure pace. Or, if you don't want to walk that much, better do as Doffcocker suggested above, take the yellow line at Urquinaona to Barceloneta.

The bar suggested by Larry (hi Larry, we had great fun there!!) is a great place and absolutely non-touristy. It's name is 'Bar Bodega l'Electricitat' and it's more than 100 years old. If you want to do it very 'local style', head there before lunch and have some house vermouth with a tapa of their famous anchovies .
Details here (in Spanish, but there is the adress and a map):

Later you can head to Can Majó for the paella, it's a couple of minutes walk from l'Electricitat.

A paella lunch will take much time or as little as you want to, as any other meal, the only difference is that a good paella should be made at the moment. So, you have to wait while it's prepared, about 30 min. After is on your table, it all depends of how fast you eat it! ;-)

But better plan some relaxed sightseeing after lunch, paella is a heavy meal... for this reason is a favorite for lazy Summer Sundays lunches!

Happy travels

You don't need a taxi to go there. It's around 10 minutes walking from the Barceloneta station.

Try to allocate 1 hour or 1.5 hour for lunch. Less will be impossible or just a little bit stressful. Enjoy the food!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

La Rambla

by Laura_Mexico

I'm not putting this in the "Must See Activities" section because, wanting it or not, you WILL see it: The Rambla! You will walk through and/or across this famous pedestrian avenue at some point of your stay in Barcelona, as it starts almost in front of the sea (the Old Port) and it takes you right to the heart of the town: Plaza Catalunya. From here you can reach nearly all of the most important spots in Barcelona very easily without having to take the metro or the bus.

The Rambla is surrounded by souvenir shops, restaurants, banks, a big market, and you can see pretty unusual things and people right on it... There's also a great place for ice cream called DINO in front of the Rambla -- I highly recommend it. And, when buying souvenirs around here, BARGAIN! The owners are usually Arabs and they will drop the price of mostly anything just to make you buy something... so show some interest but not too much, and they will try to make a deal with you. Just be careful and check the quality of the stuff, but you can find rather good things here.

great architecture - not only by Gaudi

by globetrott

This interesting small house with a great fassade was not built by Gaudi, but it seemed that Barcelona is a place, where architecture of all styles is apprechiated walk through the centre and you will see many examples of brilliant fassades

LIBELLE MIT ROTEN FLUGEIN, EINE SCHLANGE JAGENDBorn in Barcelona, Joan Miro studied art and later met Picasso. He had his first one-man show in Paris in 1929 and his first lithographs were published the same year. He later travelled to the United States and Japan producing works and exhibiting. From the seventies on, his focus was increasingly on monumental art and public works. He was considered one of the great artists of the twentieth century.

Walking through the streets

by Luchonda

Walking through the streets of Barca -
Open your eyes and enjoy the architecture in this world of Gaudi !!
Barcelona - the city to be visited - once in Europe.
The city to be revisited several times when you live in Europe.

Not only t-shirts or Sangria!!

by Azhut about Souvenirs-Ringels

In carrer de Mallorca just some steps away from the Sagrad Familia you can find many souvenirs shops, but in my opinion the best shops are a little bit far from there. If you want to buy things with lower costs walk more and choose "Ringels" shop for your shopping. "Ringels" offers typical catalan things like Gaudi's style ceramics, ash-trays, glasses etc. or you can buy a cup with the image of "El burro catalan", the symbol of Catalunya: the donkey. I noticed that "Ringels" has many articles for your house, instead of t-shirts or Sangria's bottles for example....... the same old things that everyone uses to buy during a trip.
