Cabaret hits Barcelona

Cabaret Barcelona

If your in Sitges over the comming months then its worth knowing that Cabaret is playing in Barcelona until early 2008. It will probably be one of the best performances of Cabaret you are likely to see. The legendary musical which has broken all box office records, is to open at the Teatre Apolo de Barcelona from the 26th of September. Prices from 21.60 € to 72.25 €. You can buy your tickets online here.

Easter Traditions and delicious Chocolate…..

Easter in Sitges

Like everything else they celebrate, the Catalan’s put their own twist on Easter Celebrations. The town will be busy this weekend with many people comming for their easter holidays. All of the bars are open so make the most of it. One thing you will notice on your trip is the size and variety of their Easter Eggs. More of a cross between an egg and a cake, the “Mona” is a whimsical chocolate and pastry creation given in the same way we give Easter eggs.

Bubo Bar, Barcelona

So if you are looking to get your boyfriend that perfect chocolate gift, we suggest you take a trip into Barcelona and head for the Bubo Bar and Chocolate shop on Caputxes 10.

Bubo Bar, Barcelona

Chic and fattening at the same time, you won’t be able to resist the delicious creations that this bar serves up. And their easter eggs are like works of art!

Happy Easter or as they say in Catalan, Felices Pasques.

Assuming you have the perfect apartment or Guest Room, take breakfast in one of the many cafes facing the sea. Then pop on the train to Barcelona and head for CatheHelicopters. Barcelona is a beautiful city and its architecture looks even more amazing from the Sky. It really is romantic as you take in the breataking views over the mountains and down into the city itself.

Get into the Christmas Spirit…. Vila Viniteca

Maremagnum Barcelona

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some Christmas Spirits. We just adore Vila Viniteca a family-run business which now boasts over 6,000 different wines and spirits in Stock. From the very cheap (€2 bottles of table wine) to the very expensive (1953 Damoiseau rum – €500) they have just added a new food shop which is perfect for fine cheeses, cured meets, olive oils and other delicacies.

Spain's religious orders have been hiding a secret fro many years! No nothing so evil.. just some delicious traditional food and drink made from some amazing flavours. Imagine such combinations as eucalyptus and orange liqueur all wrapped up in some beautiful pacakaging. You can even taste the food before you decide to buy any item by eating in the onsite cafe which is located on the site of a medieval thermal bath.

C/Palla 8, Barri Gòtic (93 302 69 93). Metro Liceu.
