Jazz fans from all over the world know Barcelona as the city where the International Jazz Festival is hosted every year. What they don’t know is that Barcelona is actually full of many venues supporting this genre. Check the list of jazz clubs and bars in each district of Barcelona and see where you want to go.
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.
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!
