English teachers’ Barcelona
We asked our teachers…
Where is your favourite place in Barcelona?
I suppose it would have to be the beach, but I’m not sure which one I would choose… or the labyrinth park up at the top of the city.
Any Bicing station. They are an oasis of transport for me. I think it’s a great system for people to get around the city without polluting it.
The Cuitadella on a Sunday afternoon. People are there in groups having a laugh with their mates, playing guitar, singing, doing circus tricks. It has a great vibe.
This is where I spend at least 2 hours a day , walking through the park and round the lake with my dog! What a luxury to have such a beautiful park near.
I’m absolutely unforgivable for I don’t have a favourite place. Barcelona is a great city but…I simple love where I live. It’s a nice quiet area.
An outdoor bar in the forest on Montjuic, because it is in the middle of nature, plays good music and has great views of the city’s port.
Casa Batllo, because I used to work near it in the mornings. It is beautiful in the morning sun before all the tourists congregate around it.
There are too many cool places in Barcelona for me to have a favourite, but I really like the Parc de la Ciutadella, the Arc de Triomf and the Born.
My favourite place in Barcelona is a secret bar in the city centre. To get to it you have to go through a shop to the door at the back. It’s in a little terrace with trees and it’s always quiet and relaxing, which is amazing because just outside is a really busy shopping street.
I can’t tell you where it is, though, because then it wouldn’t be a secret!
There’s a tea-shop in the Gothic quarter which sells amazing Moroccan teas, I think it’s called El Clandestino. They also have free WiFi.
