Food for veggies & what is Barcelona like on a champions league match day?

by Misha11

We are a group of 4 vegetarians (no meat or fish) plus 1 more who eats everything arriving in Barcelona October 20th for 3-5 days. Planning to stay in an apartment (I think MH Apartments Guell was mentioned as an option)

Any tips on local veggie dishes and also places to eat for lunch and dinner?

One more question - we arrive on a Champions League football day (against a russian team), but thankfully early morning. Are there places to avoid on this day?

Hi,

You might find this vegetarian guide useful

http://www.sincarne.net/

As for the football fans, you will probably find them wandering up and down Las Ramblas and Plaça de Catalunya in their replica shirts on the day of the game and maybe a day either side there is a chance some may be a bit boisterous but there are generally no problems in the city centre. Obviously Metro stations near the Nou Camp will be packed as will metros heading in that direction.

"Are there places to avoid on this day?":

reply: as this is not a match against an English or Scottish team, this is not a high risk match. There is nothing to avoid, on the contrary, I do recommed your attending that match at the huge Nou Camp stadium, even if you are not into football or sport in general. FC Barcelona is nowadays the best football team in the world and it's the price of Barcelona and rest of Catalonia, much more than a club.

..sorry, I meant the "pride", not "price".

La Báscula in carrer Flassaders (El Born) is a great option for a non-expensive dinner in a funky place. Most (if not all) dishes are vegetarian. More details in my Barcelona VT page (too lazy now to search it now!)

Other good value and (mostly) vegetarian options will be FresCo and Lactuca chain restaurants, many around town. There may be meat of fish dishes for your everything-eater friend too, but menu varies a lot from day to day.

Agree on the football suggestion by xinoxano, nothing to fear and it may be a great experience even for not football fans. But if you don't care and you don't go near Nou Camp, you most probably don't even notice there is a match on this day.

Thanks all for your suggestions....

I like football, so am going to persuade the others to go to the match - but as its the day of my cousin's Birthday (hence the reason for the trip) I don't think I'm going to have much joy. LOL

Will also search out La Báscula - in fact ended up talking about La Borne(?) Area only yesterday with an old friend.

Thanks again

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Nadie, entre el poco más de...

by fga

Nadie, entre el poco más de millón y medio de habitantes que tiene la ciudad propiamente dicha o los casi tres millones teniendo en cuenta sus alrededores, deja de reconocer que la Rambla, popularmente conocida como Las Ramblas, es un lugar de encuentro por excelencia. Hasta 1860, la Rambla era la única vía ancha, era un camino bordeado por conventos y algunos muros altos. Recién en el siglo XVIII la calle se urbanizó para convertirse en el paseo actual.
La Plaza de Catalunya en el extremo de La Rambla, es el sitio elegido por los visitantes y por los catalanes para tomarse un café en los muchos bares de la zona. Toda la movida barcelonesa pasa indefectiblemente por allí desde la mañana.
Desde la plaza en cuestión y hasta el monumento a Cristóbal Colón, La Rambla tiene cinco nombres: Canaletes, donde la voz popular jura que quien toma agua de la fuente de Canaletes habrá de volver a la ciudad; de los Estudios, cuyo nombre proviene de la antigua universidad cerrada por Felipe V, y luego transformada en cuartel y finalmente demolida en 1843; de las Flores o Sant Josep, donde está el convento del mismo nombre y donde se concentran los floristas locales; del Centro o de los Capuchinos, también por el antiguo convento de esa orden; y Santa Mónica, que muere sobre el puerto. En cada extremo una escultura de Josep Granyer, un toro y una jirafa bautizados como Meditació y Coqueta respectivamente.
Los espacios verdes son escasos, pero la ciudad tiene rincones diminutos que enamoran al visitante. La pequeña plazoleta de Sant Just o la de Sant Felip Neri son muestra de la arquitectura autóctona, tan bellas como las callejuelas Call, del Paradís y las calles con larga historia romana o medieval como la de Montcada, todas en en el corazón de la urbe antigua.

Get your portrait drawn.

by sheryl_tan

If you have the time to spend, take a seat and let one of the many artists there do a portrait for you. You may want to give them a photograph instead. Well, I certainly regretted not getting my portrait done. I am sure that this artist is going to give me big and beautiful eyes.

Catalunya Flag

by DPando

Catalunya actually is a region of Spain as others although it was born with differents identities to other regions in the actual Spain..it was in 1492 when Catalunya and Aragon Kingdom and Castilla Kingdom join in a modern state as the chief European states did in XV century AD..but till this year Catalunya has its own laws and made and unmade by its own
Later in 1714 a war beside the ancestors of actual Spanish monarchy and Austrian-hungarian heir brought our defeat against the actual Borbons (french heir) who put us down in almost 300 years of prohibitions and sorrow...
in the last century Catalunya suffered a spanish civil war among the Republic vote democratically and Falangist and the right side of spamnish people (friends of hitler and mussolini) whom won and tried to defear catalunya itself and their identity signs as the tongue and other cultural performance ...All that 60 years last (from 1939 to 1975) when Franco fortunatelly died

We are living uncetain days in Catalunya and Spain for extension ..Franco's heir (partido popular) tried to reduce all kind of catalonian nationalism expressions with spanish exaltations and speeches of antispanish people refereing to us

Catalunya and other regions are trying to copy a German or US government system, but this popular party is such afraid that avoid to talk about it and refuse it 100%

Let it see

palau de la musica catalana

by call_me_rhia

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a wonderful music hall built in modernist style by the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner between 1905 and 1908.
It's possible to visit it insite by guided visit only, at every half hour between 10.30 am - 3.30 pm, Monday to Sunday. Because there's a restricted number of people allowed on each visit it's best to turn up early or, even better, to buy a ticket for your tour one day in advance. The palace is located off via Layetana, at carrer Sant Francesc de Paula 2. Don't miss the ornated colums. their mosaics are stunning (and on the Unesco world heritage list, too)

Maremagnum

by tweetycaro

"Maremagnum" is a very successful new shopping and free time area. You can find here 12 cinemas, the Imax, and a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and discos. Night life begins here around 11 pm and lasts till 6 am, but if you are 20 or older, this is not the place to be --too many teenagers.
