I love extended stays in B&B's when traveling - especially those like El Balcon - to get a flavor for local life. The reviews here do point out some of the shortfalls...no A/C, an older building in need of some minor repairs, limited space and...More

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.
