2014 was an exciting time for us, and rightfully so—it was Devour Barcelona’s birth year, after all!
We ran pilot tours in July, launched our first tours in September and watched them grow and evolve into something amazing during the last few months. But of course, we could not have done it alone!
Through 2014 we had the chance to meet a lot of the local bloggers in and around Barcelona, as well as many who came through here on their travels and explorations throughout Spain. They were helpful to us by giving meaningful insight, useful suggestions, constructive criticism, and of course, honest reviews!
That’s what we love most about bloggers—these are real people, sharing their first-hand experiences, and without them the internet would surely be a boring place, so we’ve started Barcelona in the Blogosphere to highlight recent posts about our lovely city and region by locals, visitors and travel experts who feature it in one way or another. Every once in a while, we’ll throw something from the archives in there, just for a good read. Enjoy some of our top Barcelona blogs!
The calçot season is upon us and so if you’re visiting Barcelona between now and March, make sure to add a calçotada to your priority list. Calçotadas are winter barbecues where the calçot, a Catalan spring onion, is the protagonist (though it would be nothing without the delicious and nutty romesco sauce to dip in!). Let the experts at Grantourismo show you how to do it right.
Live a Life of Travels
We know kiwi Claire likes food—she came along on a food tour with us while on a visit to Barcelona! Explore the city’s most emblematic market, La Boqueria, with her as she peruses the many eye-catching stalls. The post includes some very useful tips and tricks for managing your way around. Want to get an insider’s view of this emblematic market? Watch our great video below to find out how to enjoy it like a local!
Foodie in Barcelona
With a discerning palate and an eye for detail, Foodie in Barcelona recently published a handy list of her favorite spots in Barcelona. Restaurants, cafes, bars and other gastronomy-related experiences, this is an awesome intro to the latest and greatest happenings in the Barcelona food scene. She’s also a big fan of good coffee, which means she’s checked out and favorited the best coffee-lover spots around.
Who would have thought that Barcelona through the camera lens of a British teenager could be so stunning? Islaay (as she points out, pronounced eye-la) has an eye for beauty, as seen in her photo diary from a recent trip to Barcelona.
As we mentioned above, here’s one from the archives (2012) that we love. The title says it all, and it’s the perfect read for the dreary months we have ahead, as we patiently wait for spring and daydream about our next wanderlust destination! This is definitely one of our top Barcelona blogs.
