I visited Oliveta in April 2016, after a difficult search for a good tapas bar in Barcelona (yeah, I know!). It was on the recommendation of a Spanish man we stopped in the street. We wanted somewhere unpretentious, used by actual locals and obviously with good food. Well, we hit the jackpot. The owners, a couple called Cesar and Edson... More

Cesare was so lovely and welcoming and happy to show me through his wide range of tapas and menu options. The gambas and boquerones en vinagre were delicious, as was the generous serving of Jamon Iberico, carved in front of me at the bar. Great value and a really local feel. Many thanks to Edson who runs a small tour... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
