Barcelona neighborhood tips

by DJStarr

Greetings!
Excited to leave Madrid and move to BCN next month - but will be living near the Hospital by the Florida Metro stop (I think Line 1) -
I'd like to find
1. A good gym/fitness centre nearby - ideas?
2. A good dance classes or studio (Salsa, Tango, Swing)
3. A good food market with healthy foods
4. An interesting church or spiritual community (Unity, Religious Science?)

Does anyone have any good leads on these things?
Also, if any VT'ers want to meet for coffee or a drink - I'd be delighted! I will be in BCN by mid-month.

Cheers,
DJ Starr

The most famous market in Bcn is the market de la Boqueria. Is located on the Rambla and has everything you like including some bars.

Hola! Welcome to Barcelona!

I'm not familiar with the area near Florida (I do live in the opposite side of the city), but we can arrange a miniVT meet somewhere in the middle ;-)

I'm pretty sure you will find a gym/fitness center and a market nearby, Barcelona is plenty of these.

Maurizio is right about La Boqueria being the most famous market, but it's not were most of us locals like to shop. It's very far away from your place, besides is the most expensive market in town... you will find everything you might need in the many regular, less-glamorous markets scattered around town:

Can't help about dance classes or churches/spiritual communities

Best wishes!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

If you go to Barcelona, you...

by jonny_b

If you go to Barcelona, you must see the fountains in the middle of the city in the evening. Yhey are fantastic, yet can be extremely packed. Warning: do not buy any of the 'glow in the dark' or flouresent hoops as they dont work the next day.
Try and have a meal at the 'Hard Rock Caf'e', its a great experience.
Also check out the Gardens and the Harbour. The view there is spectacular.
You must also see the famous 'church' which is still not completed.
Barcelona is a very clen and tidy city with very wide streets and lots of 'plane-bark' trees lining the pavements. Some of Barcelonas architectre is amazing too!. Barcelona is very busy and hot. Just the whole city its great! Yet you can see most of the city in just three to four days!

THE PARK OF LA CIUTADELLA...

by eladr

THE PARK OF LA CIUTADELLA .

This extensive green area was created in 1714 as a
military citadel and was offered to the city in 1869
and converted into a public park.

This area became the centre of the Universal
Exhibition of 1888. At present it accommodates the
Parliament of Catalonia, the Zoo, several museums,
green areas, a pond with boats and a beautiful
fountain with a cascade of statues and figures in
which Gaudí worked.

In the North entrance, the giant Victory Arch build
for the Exhibition is situated.

FLAMENCO DANCING Although it...

by chrissyalex

FLAMENCO DANCING Although it originated in Andalucia,there are shows to see in many parts of Spain. It is an artistic dance,expressing the joys and sorrows in life and you can see all these emotions on the dancers' faces when they perform. The rhythym of flamenco is created by Spanish guitar,but the beat is created by handclapping,shoestomping and sometimes with wooden castanets

THE SALON

by parsix


All my trips to Spain begin with a visit to the Salon. And after a hectic December at work I am sure I deverve it.
People have different ways of de- stressing. This is mine. Nothing more relaxing than being pampered.
And yes, sadly I was catching up with some work.

Chocolate and more chocolate!

by gordonilla about XOCOA

The shop is located in Moll d'Espanya and I can guarantee you will find you almost anything you need to get the sugar rush which only chocolate can give you! Try the chocolate with green tea....yes green tea. It is excellent. as much and as little as you want to spend on chocolate.
