The area
Address
Neighbourhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
How to get there
  • Jaume I • 4 min walk

It was so neat to see the 150 oven they use to roast the nuts. The store was quaint and the people were nice. There are so many option for your tastebuds. But, here's a tip - DO NOT buy only one box of Kodols to take back to the U.S.! Because you will eat them all and want more and they don't ship to the U.S.!! So sad. Anyone going to Barcelona anytime soon want to pick up a few boxes for me? Haha

Nuts roasted over fire makes the store smell fantastic. Purchased chocolate covered almonds and macadamian nuts for ourselves and frinds and family back home. Went back several times for more chocolate covered oranges

MyFriend did a lot of research on what we should visit Barcelona in January. Since we love seeing all types of stores she said this was the oldest one in Barcelona so we should include it on our visit. The people in the store were absolutely lovely you can try all types of dried nuts and smell the coffee. It’s about time that I opened up my coffee and remember all the fun I had in Barcelona before the virus.

I was there with my friend last week. We just walked there without knowing where we were. The shop, however caught my friend’s eyes so we stopped by.
It was the most wondering thing in my whole trip to Barcelona to walk into the shop I have to admit!!

I’m not a big fan of seeds, nuts. BUT, I ended up buying a box of Carquinylis and a jar of nuts. Even though I came on a budget airline and really had no space for any more food in my luggage, I felt I would regret it if not buy any.

Now I’m sitting in front of my computer, having a sip of hot black tea and with the caramel flavored nuts at hand. It’s heaven. Guys, go buy a jar of nuts - it’s soooo good and so worth it.

As a Taiwanese tourist I also enjoyed my little chat with one of the staff in the shop (wink!).

If you’re looking for some great gourmet food, give this place a try. The have a huge assortment of roasted nuts, dried fruits, saffron, and olive oils. Every kind of dried fruit is available; they are much softer, fresher, and better tasting than anywhere else.

The real draw here is they’ve been in operation for 150 years, and still use the same oven to roast the nuts. If you have a chance, go to the back of the store and check out the oven. It still works and is worth a look.

The dried fruit is out of this world. The dried peaches are probably the softest, most natural tasting dried fruit I’ve ever had. The nuts are delicious too, with many varieties to choose.

Their saffron, while not the cheapest, is very high quality and from the best sources in Spain. This place is a gem and has a landmark plaque embedded in the street to signify it’s been in business for many, many years.

Casa Gispert was a perfect stop on our Devour Tours food tour. Head to the back of the store and turn left and you’ll see the tall stack of wood used to fuel the roaster that’s right there in the store. We went back later to have a more thorough look around and bought several bags of roasted almonds. I’m now home and just finished my last bag and wish I’d filled my suitcase with these delicious morsels! Can’t possibly create the same flavour roasting in your oven and I dislike a strong smoky taste and these are just perfect. Lots more to temp me in this store but I restrained myself. WHY? Big mistake!

While walking around El Born, we passed by Casa Gilbert. We could not resist and had to enter.

Their collection of dried fruits, preserved fruits, spices, oils and vinegars is awesome. The products are organized in rustic shelves and boxes that take you back in time.

We got the baby dry figs and the Israeli dates. The figs figs were sweet and soft. The dates were huge, extremely soft and not as sweet as one would expect. We loved them and plan to return to Casa Gispert every time we go to Barcelona
