Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A very small house to visit but it’s relaxing and would feel you could sit around the venue and take in the beautiful decoration at leisure. Staff friendly and peaceful atmosphere.

    Nice pace to stroll about for half and hour or so. This place gives the neighborhood Spanish charm. Not touristy at all. But I also saw several graffitis ‘Tourist go home’ sprayed on the walls.
    Anyway, I didn’t feel unsafe unlike the horrific El Post.

    Plaza del Sol is one of many in Barcelona. There quite a few cafes and restaurants in the area as well as many other shops. We were there during the day and appeared to be a nice area. Don't know about night time!

    If you wish to taste the best local foods with reasonable prices, here is the place. After the meal, you can also walk around the market to buy Spanish ham, sausages, nuts, dates, etc., etc. You can also walk the old city and newly developed area near by.

    Everything is wrong : the address ( paseo de Gracia) , the localisation on the map, the pictures ( some are from the Casa de les Punxes and the others from a building at the corner of the plaza de Cataluña and paseo de Gracia) how could it be ???
    The address is in fact calle Ballester, 12 near General Mitre and plaza Lesseps and it was the house of a collector that exhibits the dresses his mother wore, some paintings, nice furniture and china....

    Five miniature theatres, five different one-act plays, an audience of only up to fifteen, sitting closer than at any other venue you've ever been to!
    Even though I speak minimal Spanish and even less Catalan, I found this to be totally immersive and because I was so close to the action, the body language brought the meaning to me. Wonderful experience. I'll definitely go again.

    Cool area to walk around. Nice shopping area. Even though it's a bit classier than other parts I still found cool street art.

    Mercat de la Llibertat is an excellent place to get some lovely fresh food at local prices. It is clean and offers a wide range of fresh produce and other products. You can buy to take away or you can sit in and enjoy a meal inside. The atmosphere is really pleasant. The service professional and friendly. The Market was built back in the late 19th century and was "recently" renovated, in 2009. It's worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.

    Very interesting point of view to understand what Spanish civil war was for lot of people. Outside the refugi they provide a brief explanation of Barcelona during that time.

    Bancs Fanals were a group of fancy iron lamp posts with marble seats attached to at the bottom of the post.
    They look cool but in all honesty I thought they were just lamp posts,there certainly not as beautiful as the Fanals in Placa Reial, that said they look cool and there's a few of them located in the Barri De Gracia area and on Passeig De Gracia which is one of Barcelona's most vibrant areas of the city.

    The La Casa Ramos is a beautiful private residence in one of the most exclusive area Sarrià-Sant Gervasi , in Barcelona. Designed by the Jaume Torres i Grau, the building is very much in Noucentisme architectural style then in vogue as a reaction to the perceived ubiquity that Catalan Modernism had become. Actually there’s a lot to be said for the similarities between he two styles.

    The building is designed with a mix of simpler facade with an intricately carved front piece of floral patterns. The different plants are differentiated into five different classes. The mezzanine floors from the 2nd up each have very attractive balconies with forged railings to complete the facade.

    Worth a detour if in the area.

    I like Black Books on TV, not so much in real life. The surly Irishman behind the counter is a poor imitation of Bernard Black, and made my visit a thoroughly unpleasant experience. The whole time I was there he was loudly rude and passive-agressive toward his co-worker, making everyone in the store quite uncomfortable. When I went to pay I was greeted with a surly glance from the above mentioned gentlemen while he continued to file his nails and ignore me until his co-worker was ready to serve me.
    Don't bother attempting to sell books to them. They will either accuse you of trying to steal them, or offer you 1 Euro for a book in brand new condition (or in my case both).

    I guess one positive is that I'm now inclined to learn Spanish so I never have to go back there.
