Brugge - Belgium Travel Guide 2022

Brugge – Belgium Travel Guide. Brugge, unlike Brussels, is Belgium’s most loved and most touristic city. So much so that this tiny medieval city hosts around 10-15 million tourists every year.

Brugge(or Brugge) is a city full of canals, beer, chips and, of course, delicious waffles. It is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium, in the northwest of the country. The medieval canals of Brugge are so famous that they called it the “Venice of the North”. If you hop on the boat and take a canal cruise, you’ll definitely understand why Bruges is the Venice of the North. Bruges’ Canals are almost as old as Brugge itself.

Brugge – Belgium Travel Guide 2022

Brugge – Belgium Travel Guide

Markt Square

This is the main square of the city. We love places like this. It is both lively and often the meeting points of young people. It is best for us to start from such a central place. It’s a really sweet challenge. Colorful buildings lined up side by side are literally screaming for photos. If you are interested, the phaetons leave from here. We definitely do not recommend it, of course. This is not the place for horses!

brugge 3616516 1920

Belfort Bell Tower

The bell tower, which is impossible to miss when you come to Markt Square. You can go to the top and watch the view of Brugge, but it didn’t appeal to us as it was 14€. The view is said to be good. Let’s add here that we saw a much better view with the drone instead 🙂 You have to climb 366 steps to get up. The Musea Brugge Card passes.

belfryofbrugesblogpostheader

Burg Square

Even though it may seem very small after the Markt, the squares are our heart. The reason for this happening is to visit the Church of the Holy Blood, which we will talk about below. After seeing the Stadhuis, which is also located in this square and attracts attention with its architecture, do not miss to see the magnificent arch on the Blinde-Ezelstraat, on its left.

612664395a40232133447d33247d3833333439333439

Basilica of the Holy Blood

Located in Burg Square, it is very difficult to understand that it is a church when you look from the outside, and this church is very important for Christians. In the church, there is a piece of cloth believed to have the blood of Jesus on it. Apart from that, the interior has the most interesting decorative elements we’ve ever seen. Entry is free. On certain days, the cloth was removed and shown to the visitors, but we could not get a very clear information about when. It is open daily between 09:30-12:00 and 14:00-17:00.

Rozenhoedkaai

In our opinion, this is the most romantic place in Brugge. A frequent destination for photography lovers. This is also the starting point of canal tours. 2be, one of Brugge’ most popular breweries, is also located here.

Church of Our Lady

Let’s not call it a church because it is the highest point of Brugge with its 122-meter tower, as well as home to Madonna and Child (Madonna and Child), the only work of Michaelangelo found outside of Italy. The entrance to the church is free, but if you want to see this work, cotton hands are in your pocket. Admission is 7€. Free for those with the Musea Brugge Card.

The detail you need to know before going about the work is that you cannot approach the work more than 15 steps. I guess that’s why they put a replica closer. The statue differs from other works of Michaelangelo, as the Virgin Mary seems to be smiling. Located in the Vatican, St. It is also very similar to the Pieta in St. Peter’s Basilica.

st. John’s Hospital (St. John’s Hospital)

One of the oldest surviving hospitals in Europe, St. John’s Hospital served until 1978. Currently, it continues its life as a museum. You can both learn about its history and see the works of the famous Flemish artist Hans Memling. Admission is 12€. The Musea Brugge Card passes. Even if you don’t visit inside, the garden is quite sweet. Be sure to take a look.

Begijnhof (Ten Wijngaerde)

Begijnhof, a convent where widowed or unmarried women live, is still an extremely quiet place where life continues. It is so calm that there are even signs to be quiet around. You can even come here to escape the crowds of Brugge. There is also a house that tells about the life here. The entrance fee is 2€. It closes at 18:30 in the evening.

Minnewaterpark

Minnewater Park, which is very close to the Begijnhof, is a place to take a rest. It is ideal for walking and relaxing with snacks.

Bruggecity 15

Groenerei

One of the quietest places in Brugge is this canal and its surroundings. The houses with ivy and the bridges again allowed us to take beautiful pictures.

de 16de eeuwse achtergevel

Bonifacius Bridge

We left our favorite place in Brugge for last. We declare this place as the most photogenic place of Brugge. Even if we did not realize that it is not a very old bridge with our Elf eyes, we think that the fact that we have seen the bride and groom photo shoot here gives an idea about its photogenicity.

medium Bonifacius Bridge Bonifaciusbrug 1 Jan D Hondt Visit Flanders 1b58c61d70

Museums

As we said, the museum did not interest us at all here. We didn’t have time either. But it might interest you. Gruuthusemuseum, Groeningemuseum and, perhaps, one of the most interesting museums, Frietmuseum (Fries Fries Museum) are museums to visit.

Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan

We wrote this brewery in places to visit because it’s a super tour. They explain the production processes of the beer and at the end of the tour there is an unfiltered beer treat. For those who do not go to the Belfort Bell Tower, a very satisfying view of the city can also be a plus. We really enjoyed this tour. The tour fee is 15€ per person.

You will see Brugse Zot, the beer produced here, from many parts of the city.

Brugge Canal Tour

One of the best activities to do in Brugge is the canal tour. Normally these seem like tourist traps to us, but things have changed in Bruges. In our opinion, exploring the city through the canals in a magnificent weather should definitely be done when you come here. You both see the places you cannot see on foot, and you have the chance to look at the places you see from a different angle.

There are several companies for the tour but they all follow the same route. The tour takes approximately 40 minutes. Tickets were 10€ per person in July 2021.

Ghent – Belgium Travel Guide 2022 You can visit Gent for a day just like in Bruges. If you want to see the city in more detail, of course, 2 days will be more comfortable.

We are sure that you will love the calmness of Ghent, especially after the tourist crowd of Bruges. Since the city is flat, it can be easily visited on foot, and it is a very pleasant place in terms of eating and drinking. Have a good trip already!

Ghent – Belgium Travel Guide 2022

#1 Saint Michael’s Church:

The construction of Saint Michael’s Church began in 1440 with a two-phase plan, to be built on the site of another chapel that existed at the same place. It took so many years to complete that in the meantime, some parts of it were badly damaged, so it was demolished and rebuilt. The church was normally intended to have a tower; Come and go, when the construction was still not completed in 1828, the church was completed without a tower and opened to visitors.

The general architectural style of the church, which is made of sandstone, which you will see frequently in Gent, is Gothic and Baroque, and its interior architecture has Neo-Gothic and Baroque decorations. Its decoration includes paintings by important Flemish artists such as Anthony van Dyck from the 18th century and a copy of Michelangelo’s Madonna of Bruges by someone else.

In front of the church St. You will see the Michael Bridge. This bridge, which was built in 1905 in Neo-Gothic style, is also very valuable due to its harmony with the surrounding architecture and its contribution to the Gothic silhouette of Ghent.

#2 Graslei & Korenlei:

Most of the places to visit in Ghent are located in the historical city center around the Leie River, which divides the city into two. While walking the most important points of Gent, you will often come to the quay area where the Leie River flows. The right section of the Leie River is called Graslei, and the left section is called Korenlei. Both areas were important ports of the Middle Ages, and are now one of the most touristic and lively areas of Ghent. Along the quay, there are all kinds of historical shops and merchant houses that serve as venues today. The general landscape is like a nostalgic postcard; one is surprised which one to study. You can visit this area by walking on the quay around the canal or by joining the canal tours with boats. You can find the details about the Gent canal tour in the continuation of the article.

#3 Saint Bavo’s Cathedral:

Saint Bavo’s Cathedral, one of the landmarks of Ghent, was completed in 942 and located in the same place, St. John the Baptist Church took its present form with the additions that started in 1274. Like many buildings in Ghent, St. Bavo’s Cathedral is also in Gothic style. The magnificence of Saint Bavo’s actually comes from its 89-metre length, itself one of the most magnificent spots in the city.

It is of particular importance for Ghent that the cathedral hosts The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb painting by Hubert and Jan van Eyck, one of the most valuable works of the Northern Renaissance period and Belgium. Adoration of the Mystic Lamb is among the oldest oil paintings in the world. Other works by Flemish artists are also displayed in the cathedral.

st. Bavo’s Cathedral is located on Sint – Baafsplein, one of the main squares of Ghent. In this square, St. In addition to Bavo’s Cathedral, you will also see the Belfort bell tower and the Royal Dutch Theater building. There is a place called Achtersikkel 100 meters ahead of the square. This Renaissance-era building with its two round towers takes its name from the Sickelen family, who was among the wealthiest in the city at that time and owned the houses here. As the Achtersikkel is used as the Ghent conservatory today, you can hear the students’ work while walking in its courtyard.

Location: Sint-Baafsplein, 9000 Gent, Belgium

#4 Belfort van Gent:

The Belfort bell tower, whose construction was completed in 1380, is located in Ghent’s St. Nicholas Church and St. It is one of the three tallest structures along with Bavo’s Cathedral. The bell tower, which symbolizes the independence of the city and undertakes the duties of announcement, observation and defense, is 91 meters long and is under the protection of UNESCO. The bell tower is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00, the entrance fee is €8. Free for those with City Card Ghent.

The rectangular building right next to Belfort was completed in 1445 as Cloth Hall, or Cloth Exchange. It took 1903 for the hall to take its original form, but even as it was opened, it became the center of the textile trade of Ghent in the Middle Ages. Mammelokker, which was added between Cloth Hall and Belfort, was built as an entrance to the city prison.

#5 Korenmarkt:

The old wheat market of Gent, Korenmarkt, is located on the Leie River and St. Nicholas Church. Korenmarkt is one of the most touristic spots in Ghent today, with dozens of cafes and restaurants serving in historical architecture, just like in the quay area. Connecting the city’s famous shopping streets, Veldstraat and Kortemunt, this square was once the city center of Graslei and Korenlei.

It was used as a place where the wheat brought from its mother was sold.

#6 Nicholas Church:

One of our favorite architectures in Gent, St. Nicholas Church! Like other religious buildings of Ghent, this one was built on an existing church. st. Nicholas Church is said to have lasted throughout the 13th century, and judging by the result, we can say that it was worth it at the highest level possible. What makes this church one of our favorites in Ghent is that it is finished with a special blue stone brought from the Tournai region.

Tournai is located in the Scheldt region, which includes Ghent, and the name of this region comes from the Scheldt River. Thanks to this blue stone used in its construction, St. Nicholas Church is considered one of the best examples of the Scheldt Gothic architectural style. If you haven’t heard before, the most important details of the Scheldt Gothic style include the blue stone of the Tournai region, the single tower rising in the middle of the church, and the slender cylindrical towers at the corners of the architecture. The church is open to visitors between 10:00 and 17:00 every day except Mondays. It can be visited between 14:05 and 17:00 on Mondays. Entry is free.

#8 Patershol:

Before we started to tour Ghent, we met with an officer at the tourist office. When I asked him if he had a place to recommend other than places to visit, he said that we should definitely go to Patershol. That’s how our dear Patershol and our paths crossed. Patershol is definitely one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Ghent with its cobblestone streets, historical authentic houses, super delicious places and hidden underground bars. The streets are a complete movie set, you really feel like you are inside the decor while walking. How this beautiful medieval texture has been preserved so well in the intervening time is another matter of curiosity!

Patershol is an artistic neighborhood mostly preferred by the intellectuals. Belgian artists live in this neighborhood with the painter; It is very possible that you will come across their workshop on the streets. Naturally, design boutiques and galleries are a must here. The traces of the Middle Ages already suit any art-related space; but one of the features that makes Patershol so famous today is undoubtedly the venues that form a gourmet route here. In Patershol, you can find many options not only for European cuisine, but also for world cuisine. And of course, traditional pubs are another alternative for those who want to try Belgian beers.

If you want to visit a museum in Patershol, you can go to the House of Alijn, where an old nursing home has been turned into a museum. The museum is entirely about the 20th century; It has a collection of objects, photographs and records of daily life.

Dutch fishing town: Volendam

Published

on

Volendam

Volendam and Edam are two quaint fishing towns just north of Amsterdam. Volendam and Edam, which attract a lot of attention by tourists, are half an hour away from Amsterdam.

As you can guess from the Edam cheese that most of us know, it is one of the great places for food and cheese. Let’s start by explaining these two charming towns separately, which should definitely be visited by those who pass by Amsterdam.

How to get to Volendam?

As we mentioned above, Volendam is located in the north of Amsterdam and can be reached with a journey of 30-40 minutes. You can reach here directly by bus number 316, which departs from Amsterdam Centraal. To get on this bus, you must buy an Amsterdam & Regional Ticket. We talked about this ticket and other ticket types in detail in our Amsterdam Public Transport Cards and Fares article, we recommend you to read it. You can also see how you can reach Volendam from the regions around Amsterdam via the application or site of the GVB, which we mentioned in the same article.

Volendam Trip

Volendam is a town whose streets you have to get lost in. Of course, you should take a tour on Haven Street, by the sea, first. As a sailor, the crowd of boats at sea amazed me. The marina and classical type sailboats in the sea also add a nice atmosphere to the town. It is understood from the architecture that Volendam is a predominantly Catholic region. It was very pleasant to walk by the sea in the company of these beautiful one-storey houses. Also, I don’t know if it’s always open, but on both my visits, there was a market in an area like the town square where everything was sold. If you are thinking of buying souvenirs, the prices are more affordable compared to the center of Amsterdam.

Dining in Volendam

Now let’s come to one of the most enjoyable parts of Volendam where it is quite good. Volendam offers really good options for food. Seafood is perfectly delicious as it is a fishing town. When you come here, don’t come back without eating Kibbeling from the mobile buffet that I have pictured below. Kibelling; We can say fish and chips, served with tartar sauce. As I got off the bus on both my visits to Volendam, I went here to eat fish first.

Another suggestion is to eat hot mussels in Volendam. However, the mussels here are different. It is served marinated with a by-product or beverage, such as wine, beer, and hot sauce. I ate mussels at the HavenGat bar on the beach and it was quite successful, but since the price was around 20€, 4 people could eat a pot.

In the cafes and barsalong the beach, it is very enjoyable to eat or drink with the sea view, especially in hot weather.

Another thing you should eat when you come to Volendam is the famous Dutch cheeses. There is a cheese museum and many cheese shops here. Cheese tasting is free in the shops. You can taste any cheese you want. There are more types of cheese than you can imagine. The cheeses flavored with herbs such as lavender surprised me. Also, the smoked cheese, which is called smoked, was my favourite, although it did not suit all tastes.

12 Most Touristic Cities in England

12 Most Touristic Cities in England. England is one of the strongest and most developed countries on the European continent. England, which is a union, is a country that hosts millions of tourists every year. Especially the cities that host the most tourists in England are also very curious.

Here are 12 cities you must see in England;

12 Most Touristic Cities in England

1 – LONDON

There are cities in the world that are more known than the country they are in. Like Paris, New York, Istanbul. London is one of them. It’s like a country on its own. With its black taxis, red buses and telephone booths, and its unique architecture, which is proof of a deep-rooted adaptability, London is of course the most touristic city in England and almost in the world.

12 Most Touristic Cities in England

2 – OXFORD

The city of colleges, Oxford, which is the subject of the famous phrase of a famous elder: “There was Oxford in Urfa but we didn’t go?”, is home to the oldest university in the world. England, the second city of my travel writing, Oxford has been invaded by high school-age youth groups from all over the world who have come to get to know colleges and summer schools. Colleges, museums, other buildings, in short, everywhere seems to have come from the pages of history.

 England

3 – CAMBRIDGE

After the establishment of Oxford, the second oldest university in the world in the 11th century, there were great conflicts between the university and the public, and a group of academics and university students decided to leave Oxford. They came to Cambridge, a quieter place, and established the world’s 3rd oldest university in Cambridge, meaning the bridge over the River Cam, a century after the founding of Oxford.

The Lake District is, in my opinion, the most impressive region of England in terms of natural beauty.

Like Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, The Lion King at Discoveryland, the Tarzan show at The Caparral Theatre. You can see the dates, places and times of these on the map given to you at the entrance of the park.

A chirpy park full of joy, joy and adrenaline, where there are entertainment and game sections in countless concepts in each of them. The joy and excitement of children screaming wildly with huge eyes is an experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona. When it comes to Spain, of course, the food is one of the things that makes us the happiest.

Of course, Barcelona is one of the places that did not disappoint us in this regard. When you ask what to eat in Barcelona, ​​tapas comes to mind first. In addition, tourists from all over the world bring very good examples from every cuisine with them. Our priority in Barcelona is tapas, not world cuisine.

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Patatas Bravas

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Potatoes cut into cubes are fried and served with a hot and spicy sauce. These potatoes, which are soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside, are a good start before the meal.

Tortilla de patatas/Spanish omelette

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona
Spain has seen the potato omelette made by mothers at home. The difference from the ones at home is that potatoes and onions are boiled in oil at low heat. Then, beaten eggs are added to this mixture and cooked a little like that. An indispensable element of every meal.

Crema Catalana

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

This is the Catalan version of Crème Brûlée. Maybe there are slight differences in the way they are made. But we couldn’t feel any difference in taste.

Calçots

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona
Calçots, a type of spring onion, are grilled like asparagus and served with a special sauce called Romesco, made with pepper, garlic, almonds and spices. It is a product that can only be found fresh in months like February and March. That’s why you can’t always find it.

Bombas

They gave it this name because it resembles the hand grenades used during the civil war in shape. Imagine that the outside of our kibbeh consists of boiled potatoes mixed with eggs. Then we fry it with a trio of breadcrumbs, eggs and flour. Here is the bomb.

Paella

We don’t know how Valencia’s famous paella became known with Barcelona. But since you’ve come this far, don’t leave without trying the seafood paella. Plenty of vegetables, saffron, broth and rice are cooked like pilaf, and plenty of products such as shrimp, mussels and squid are added to it. It is indispensable especially for Sunday brunches.

Pa amb Tomàquet

We left our favorite for last. We wrote it with its original name so that it will attract attention. If we wrote tomato bread, you would probably skip this part. He toasts the bread and spreads it on the garlic and tomato, respectively. We’re not talking about driving with a knife. We rub the vegetables you know on the bread one by one. Then a little olive oil, a little salt and here is Pa amb Tomàquet like misss. In some places they leave it in front of you for free, in some places you have to order it. Be careful, don’t fill your stomach with it. Especially the beautifully made one is as addictive as sunflower seeds.

Where to Eat Tapas in Barcelona?

In tapas bars, we especially like to sit at the bar and watch the orders coming from the surrounding area. You have the chance to chat with the service providers and see if there is a product you missed on the menu. One of the points we miss the most is showing the plate “uhh uhh” and saying give me this. In many places, you have the opportunity to fill your stomach for 15 € per person.

Canete

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona
One of our favorite places in Barcelona. The location is also very good, in one of the side streets of La Rambla. There was no food that we tried here and called even mediocre. Fried eggplant with molasses sauce and suckling pig are our favourites. The only flaw is that it has prices slightly above the city average. Reservation is required.

Address: Carrer de la Unió, 17, 08001 Barcelona

Website: www.barcanete.com

Ciutat Comtal / Cerveseria Catalana

B1829C9C EF44 4EA6 8615 E31AF8D33A1D 1170x690 1
We included two different venue names in the title. The owner, the menu and the food are all the same. We even made a joint two orders for comparison at both venues. We were a little upset that it was the same as the way it was presented. One of the most touristic places. If you are going to try tapas for the first time, have a limited budget or want to try something for breakfast, you can give a chance. If there is no reservation, you can wait for a while and find a place.

Comtal Address: Rambla de Catalunya, 18, 08007 Barcelona

Cerverseria Address: C/ de Mallorca, 236, 08008 Barcelona

ELDISET

A place with modern touches on tapas. Modern does not mean fine dining, of course. Prices are average. It would be much better to have a snack with a few tapas orders instead of having dinner here. Reservation may be required as it is located in El Born and quite small.

Address: Carrer Antic de Sant Joan, 3, 08003 Barcelona

Cal Pepe

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

One of the old places of the city. If you want to try all the products mentioned above together, this is the most suitable place. Their main specialty is seafood. Definitely one of the places we’d say sit at the bar. It is very enjoyable to be excited about running in the kitchen and wondering if this plate is mine. Prices are still at normal levels and it is very difficult to find a place without reservation.

Address: Plaça de les Olles, 8, 08003 Barcelona

La Pepita

BA8A5465 48C5 4DA6 AA6A F41C1BAC8891 1170x690 1

We didn’t list it above, but a tour of Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without sangria. La Pepita is famous for both its modernly interpreted tapas and sangria. When we first entered, we felt like we had come from a restaurant to a very cute bar. Prices slightly above average at the One of the best places to make a reservation.

Address: C. de Còrsega, 343, 08037 Barcelona

Casa Lolea

2E67D5D9 89BB 43A5 B34B C006A6350633 1170x690 1

When you want to buy sangria from the free shop, the first brand you come across is Casa Lolea. This is the restaurant part. They have different types of sangria and you should definitely try it. One of our favorite places in Barcelona. Prices are average. Ceviche, mushroom guacamole, apple brie, and chocolate ganache are our star recommendations. Reservation is a must.

Address: Carrer deSant Pere Més Alt, 49, 08003 Barcelona

El Xampanyet

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Again, it is an extreme tourist place. Since we went many times, we can say with peace of mind that the prices have increased a lot compared to the past. I guess that’s one of the sad parts of being a tourist. However, it does not have a bad side in terms of taste. Still one of the best and classic tapas restaurants in the city. At the point where you find it difficult to choose from the menu like us, you can leave yourself to the recommendations of the employees. There can be big queues at the door before the opening time. Does not take reservations.

Address: Carrer de Montcada, 22, 08003 Barcelona

Can Paixano

A budget-friendly place where you can have both cava (such as Catalan champagne, prosecco) and tapas for very cheap. When two people offer the opportunity to gorge on food and drink for 20 €, the crowd is inevitable. Of course, at these prices, your expectations should not be too high. Still, it’s a fun place to stop by.

Address: Carrer de la Reina Cristina, 7, 08003 Barcelona

Brugarol

If you are looking for a special place, you can try Brugarol, which won the hearts with its tasting menu. Portions on the tasting menu are small but adequate. A la carte menu is also available. Reservation is required. If you can’t find a place here, they also have another location called Brugarol X that offers the same menu.

Address: C/ de Salomo I Adret, 10, 08002 Barcelona

What to Eat in Barcelona Apart from Tapas?

Especially if you have 4-5 days or more, after a point you enter a repeating tapas cycle. That’s why it’s good to try alternative places.

Pastisseria Hofmann

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Of course, we won’t just talk about the food. No one should question our bakery/dessert love. Even if you don’t like sweets, we recommend you to try Hofmann at least once. It is not possible to call the products they make cakes. We think they are making art. They also have a croissant with mascarpone. You can’t bear to eat. Starred UH recommendation.

Address: Carrer dels Flassaders, 44, 08003 Barcelona

Pastisseria Takashi Ochiai

627B98A6 1BD4 4989 852E BFD680677DB1 1170x690 1

The name does not mislead you. As we said at the beginning of the article, there are good examples from all over the world here. We also recommend a Japanese bakery in Barcelona. Their croissants are enormous, but you must try the mochi. Since we couldn’t find the appropriate words to describe it, we left his photo above.

Address: Carrer del Comte d’Urgell, 110, 08011 Barcelona

Pastisseria Brunnels

 

Croissant is one of our weak points. When we learned that the croissant of this place was also awarded, we ate it with love, even though we went with a full stomach. Crash for a crunchy, buttery-smelling croissant.

Address: Carrer de la Princesa, 22 Barcelona

Fabrica Moritz

835B3EC2 0231 4475 A541 9315EE53316E 1170x690 1

One of Barcelona’s famous brewers and the oldest. But they are very famous not only for their beer but also for their roosters that they cook in tins. When you go to visit the El Raval region, we say that you should definitely drop your way.

Address: Ronda de Sant Antoni, 41, 08011 Barcelona

San Pedrito

D0224AD6 F34A 48AB A12F 6C2C38583FA7 1170x690 1

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Taco is one of our weak points. We have a special weakness for the original ones, not the American version. We think there are three places where you can eat good tacos in Barcelona. Since we cannot separate them from each other, we leave the addresses of all three below.

*San Pedrito

Address: Carrer de la Fusina, 6, 08003 Barcelona

*Tlaxcal Cantina & Taqueria

Address: C/ del Comerc, 27, 08003 Barcelona

*Restaurant Rosa Negra

Address: Via Laietana, 46, 08003 Barcelona

Parking Pizza

84FBCA12 46D0 43AF 8D81 1CAE3E18FC9C 1170x690 1
This is our favorite pizza place in Barcelona. It has an industrial style design and you share the table with others. Of course, this is valid if you are not traveling as a group of 8-10 people. Prices are very reasonable and they don’t just do pizza. However, it may not be the right choice to come and eat pasta here when the place even has its own name as a pizzeria. Black truffle and margherita star recommendations.

Address: Pg. de Sant Joan, 56, 08009 Barcelona

L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele

B3ED405A 4819 476A 9100 E44EEB1DC832 1170x690 1

The first city that comes to mind when it comes to pizza may be Naples, and Da Michele in Naples. One of the branches opened in different cities of the world is in Barcelona. Even though the branches don’t usually taste the same, it wouldn’t have happened if we didn’t give it a chance. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite meet our expectations, but you may still want to try it. At least, you will have eaten in a place like a neighborhood kebab shop in Turkey, and you will satisfy your homesickness.

Address: Carrer de Concell de Cent 336 Barcelona

Puertecillo Born

960A2B5B 3075 4A56 A240 E792EFFFB274 1170x690 1

If you want to gorge on seafood for very cheap, prepare to stand in line at El Born. Right behind the El Born Cultural Center, in Puertecillo, which is loved by both tourists and locals, you can taste the products from the fresh fish counter chip, then you wait for them to cook. Did I mention the prices are sooooo cheap? Because the price is cheap, do not overlook the order quantity. Then you’ll have to look for Gaviscon like we do. Does not take reservations.

Address: Carrer Comercial, 7, 08003 Barcelona

Where to Have Breakfast in Barcelona?

Options for breakfast in Barcelona are almost endless. You can start the day with tapas or with a rich breakfast with eggs and pancakes. For example, although we generally went for options such as croissants and eggs, we started a day in Ciutat Comtal.

Bristol Cafe

17080449 3FF5 4C04 B2B0 A9D98223795D 1170x690 1

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

A place where you can call us a menu. Go straight in and have yourself a nice plate of cakes on the counter. The products on the menu are standard things you can find almost everywhere. Prices are not high. Reservation is not required.

Address: Carrer de Roger de Flor, 220, 08013 Barcelona

Ugot Bruncherie

Here, both the standard breakfast menu and the tarts and cakes are very nice. Therefore, we cannot directly say that we recommend this. Because they’re all our babies. The decoration is also very sweet. The only bad thing about this place is the long wait at the door and the worry that the cakes on the counter will run out while you wait.

Address: C. de Viladomat, 138, 08015 Barcelona

Billy Brunch

3E7F4081 9C51 443C 9AEB 4D470A402C09 1170x690 1

Billy, which is at the top of the lists for an egg breakfast, is one of the most popular breakfast places in the city. The fact that they add a new branch to their list every time we look at them shows that everyone thinks the same as us. Although it is so popular, we can’t say that it got a passing grade from us. However, if you say you want to wait in line and decide for yourself, their breakfast is in the range of 10-15 € per person.

Address: C/ de Bailèn, 115, 08009 Barcelona

Creamat 11

0B6BC284 FECA 40A1 9C13 76E6BE999ABC 1170x690 1
We can’t be objective towards Cremat, as it directly wins our hearts by melting both eggs and pancakes in one pot. We loved him very much. Breakfasts are in the range of 10-15 € per person. A place with plenty of options for vegans.

Address: Carrer Cremat Gran, 11, 08003 Barcelona

Federal Cafe

This is one of our old eyesores. We had a chance to try it when they weren’t that big yet, and we still don’t forget that breakfast. We did not try this place on our last tour, as it is better to keep some places alive in memories. We hope they did not spoil themselves too much while opening so many branches. If you try, please tell us about your experience in the comments section.

Address: C. del Parlament, 39, 08015 Barcelona

Milk Bar & Bistro

It is a very popular breakfast place even when social media has not yet determined popular places. One of our favorites for breakfast with eggs. Most importantly, even the poached chicken on the menu may be enough to come. One of the rare breakfast places that takes reservations.

Address: Carrer d’en Gignàs, 21, 08002 Barcelona, ​​Spain

Bars

Barcelona is home to several venues on the list of the world’s 50 best cocktail bars. Since this list is updated every year, places can be left out of the list and re-entered from time to time.

Dr Stravinsky

1E482782 71E3 4D71 91AF 1C861BBD4B3E 1170x690 1
If the aim is to only drink cocktails regardless of the concept of the venue – as we usually do – our favorite is Dr Stravinsky. They have a very interesting menu and you almost make your choice from a star map. Although they were dropped from the list this year, there were times when they were in the top 50. One of the places where we can give a starred UH recommendation. There isno restriction on clothing. Prices are around 10-15 €.

Address: Carrer dels Mirallers, 5, 08003 Barcelona

Paradiso

0FB5E656 41A0 4ACC 9910 EE5C19EAE85D 1170x690 1

Food and Drink Guide in Barcelona

Paradiso manages to be at the top of the top 50 list every year. Along with the proprietary success, it also brings long waiting times at the door. So prepare to spend most of the night waiting in line at the door. Here, before the cocktails, the venue itself and the presentations are at the forefront. Of course, these cocktails do not mean bad. But it’s too late for the cocktail to focus on other points. There is no restriction on clothing. However, that doesn’t mean you can enter with the Barcelona jersey. It is enough to have a little more casual clothes on. Prices are around 10-15 €.

Address: Carrer de Rera Palau, 4, 08003 Barcelona

Bobby’s Free

6870923C D8B2 4BC5 BE47 EDBD19CF6B6F 1170x690 1
Again, a venue whose concept is ahead of its cocktail. From the outside, he looks like an ordinary barber. But if you know the password, instead of a haircut, you can access good cocktails in a bar straight out of the 80s. The password is published on Instagram accounts at the beginning of each month. Even if you don’t know the password, they give you plenty of clues to get you inside somehow 🙂 Prices are around 10-15 € again.

Address: C/ de Pau Claris, 85, 08010 Barcelona
