How to experience the entire Spanish culture in a few hours?

El Poble Espanyol

Barcelona most certainly offers anything and everything you can imagine, even the possibility to see almost all regions of Spain all together in one town – Poble Espanyol (Catalan for Spanish Town).
The peaceful and unique village full of Spanish soul is definitely worth a visit if you want to spend the day exploring and getting to know the different autonomous communities and regions of Spain.

District of the month – Sarrià-Sant Gervasi

Lying in the northwestern part of the city and covering around 20 km2 of the total city’s area is January’s featured district – Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. It is one of the largest districts in Barcelona and even though quite near the center (considering the easy access to the public transport), it offers a calm getaway from all the hustle & bustle there.

Even though in the past El Raval could be considered the “sketchy” area to avoid, it has been stepping up its’ game and has become a trendy cultural center. And yes, you might experience a bit more “raw” lifestyle than in the rest of Barcelona, but I suggest looking at it simply as a unique edgy vibe of the area, and it might surprise you. In a good way of course!
