LaLiga Santander 2018-2019 has already started at Camp Nou
You will find below the calendar of all the matches that Barça will play in Camp Nou for LaLiga Santander and Champions League
New Year´s Eve 2017 is approaching and we have started to listen to our friends the typical question of every year at this point: what will you do the 31st? Some of them want to finish the year quietly and others feel like crazy party. As for the first, we will post in the next few days various proposals for dinner easy and relaxly, which also serves for the seconds, and for the seconds, we have prepared this list with which seem to be the best parties to end year in Barcelona.
Since some years in Barcelona, it is possible to enjoy during the summer of different temporary open air cinemas to watch films, both free and paid
The pleasant temperatures of the summer period favor the appetite of being enjoying the “fresh air”, reason why these ephemeral cinemas become an alternative ideal for leisure
Primavera Sound 2017, Sonar, Vida Festival, Cruilla…………..
I think we all feel how the summer is coming to Barcelona. We noticed it looking at the people and how they use less clothes, more people wearing shorts, no jacket, more girls wearing dress without stockings … The terraces are full, people are generally happier. And apart from going to the beach, how do people have fun in Barcelona? Doing outdoor activities, such as going to the open air cinema at Sala Montjuic or going to concerts and festivals, among other things. There is something for everyone. That´s why we have made a much wider selection of the most interesting events that will take place during the summer.
The octopus with the parmentier we tested at MonDoré, a fantastic brewery in Sant Antoni, is one of the best we have ever had in recent months
MonDoré brewery is focused to all types of public, both for families with children looking for simple dishes such as pizzas or cocas, as well as business people looking for something more refined dishes. The menu contains from croquettes and patatas bravas, to more sophisticated dishes like the above-mentioned octopus or the syrupy with meat sauce cooked at low temperature.
As far as drinks are concerned, MonDoré offers up to 30 varieties of beer. In fact, it has its own craft beer, with 30% of hops that gives you the bitterness and a touch of honey and grapefruit. They make cocktails with or without alcohol and traditional sangria or with cava.
Our experience was very positive at this brewery. First we tried their beer and we were amazed, since neither of us are very fans of the craft beer in general, but we liked it a lot this one.
When they started to bring the dishes they put us a white garnacha wine, fruity and volatile, without much persistence in the mouth, but with a good acidity.
Our dinner consisted of:
The guests of The Urban Suites have a walk, from our tourist apartments in Barcelona to MonDoré, of only 10 minutes.
Address: Floridablanca 3

Many of our guests come from Arab cultures and ask for halal restaurants in Barcelona
For this reason, we have encouraged ourselves to write this post, because more than once we asked them: what is halal?
The word “Halal” in Arabic means lawful and its application to gastronomy describes those foods and beverages that in Muslim culture are allowed to eat and accepted by Islamic law.
According to halal food authority, “since pork is forbidden, halal slaughtering must not be done where pigs are slaughtered or in the vicinity of pigs slaughtering area. There are a few more edicts and rules that have to be followed in the interest of animal welfare. For example, animal has to be fed as normal and given water prior to slaughter, one animal must not see the other being slaughtered, knife should be four times the size of the neck and razor sharp, and as far as possible the slaughterer and the animal should face the Qibla or Mecca and the animal must not be suffering from any ailments or any lacerations.”
Then we leave our selection of halal restaurants in Barcelona:
Although Spring started with rain in Barcelona, during the Holy Week the weather will be nicer in this area of the Mediterraneo than in the rest of Spain, according to the Statal Meteorologic Agency. If this issue affected to the destiny decision for your holidays, you have a magnific option in Barcelona.
The streets of Barcelona will be plenty of runners next 14th February
