Our first dinner at El Castel. You will note that our whole trip will revolve around food and wine...as it should be!
So from the El Prat Aeroport, we took the L77 bus to Sant Boi about a 25 min ride. And only 189 metres to the hotel...Up hill. Robin documented the "ascent" every few metres...
... referred to as La Pedrera, which means the quarry, because of its wavy exterior.
The rooftop was my favorite part of La Pedrera. It's difficult to describe so check out the pictures. There are no even surfaces on the roof. One must climb stairs and go down ramps to get around the circular roof. It was almost impossible to tell which set of stairs I came up from, as the whole area really plays with one's mind. The views of Barcelona and Tibidabo were astounding. It was ...
... not fulfilled, but it was still enjoyable! We came to Barcelona in the night and went to the hostel to drop off our stuff. Then we started walking around the city and ended up laying at a bridge in the harbor looking at the stars.
Vamos a la Playa When we woke up the 2nd day in Barcelona after a long night of walking around the city centre, we decided to go to the Sagrada Familia because it's supposedly a beautiful church. I'm sure ...
... an inordinate amount of tourists, at least much more noticeably than Madrid, I saw quite an impressive mix of global travelers. But what really threw me off was the language and culture. Not to draw too much comparison, but living in Madrid, having travelled Andalucía and Valencia, my spanish has taken me quite far.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel El Castell Sant Boi de Llobregat
This place reminds me of my grandparents state in Mexico City. The view of the city is awesome; the building has a great history and dates back to 801! The service has been very good, our server Pablo has bent over backwards to deliver a couple of cold Moritz beers, antipasto platers with Manchego cheese, Iberic ham and Terra Nostra wine. Dinner later at the outdoor dinning room was Salmoralejo (Gazpacho), antipasto platter with cheese, prosciutto, endives, anchovies, etc. porc "old style" with peppers and tomatoes, and a fish platter with red peppercorns, fruit and vanilla ice cream for dessert. More of the Terra Nostra chilled tinto and two espressos cortados con leche! Very nice indeed!
