The word “local” means something that “is particular to a place or belongs to it”. But when you travel, this definition increases ten-fold. Living like a local in a city that is not yours is one of the most intense and rewarding experiences. And if the city of Barcelona is your chosen destination, congratulations. You have a perfect plan in store.
The day starts with a good breakfast
Coffee is one of the top drinks in Spain and Barcelona is no exception. So, the first step for you to start your day as a real local, is with a breakfast topped by a good coffee. In Barcelona it is easy to find trendy places where, as well as a great atmosphere, you can enjoy this drink as it deserves. From Casagrand head to the nearby and quiet street Enric Granados and enter CafeCosmo. A modern and colorful café where you can enjoy delicious, homemade breakfasts and brunches.
The aperitif, a classic
Traditions are another attraction of the city. One of the favorites of the people of Barcelona is to get together to have a vermouth. Around 1pm, couples and groups of friends gather on terraces and enjoy this drink. Without a doubt, a perfect plan we recommend is to try one of the most traditional bars in Barcelona. Just a few minutes’ walk from Casagrand, is Entrepanes Díaz, the perfect place to welcome lunchtime, enjoy this drink and some of their tasty dishes. You will not be disappointed!
Barcelona, a city of many neighborhoods
If you stay in Casagrand, you will have the chance to fully experience the neighborhood of Eixample. An area of the city that is full of shops, wide avenues to walk along, charming bars and restaurants and nearby parks to get lost in. And only 20 minutes away from our apartments you will be able to welcome the afternoon in the secret terrace of Turó Park. One of the most historical parks in Barcelona and the perfect hiding place for locals in the area. Sit at its leafy terrace and simply enjoy your time in the city.
