If you are anything like me, then holiday time is definitely always eat-amazing-food time. Seriously, diet and exercise all go out the window when I find myself surrounded by delicious and exotic food. And because Barcelona is just the way it is, when in town you are literally always surrounded by fantastic cooking and fresh ingredients.
However, the baked delicacies in Barcelona are especially fantastic. Whether you’re looking for some authentic Catalan-style bread for a picnic on the beach, sweet confectionery for a special event, or a pastry because it’s Thursday – you will find a delicious-smelling bakery where everything tastes as if its homemade almost on every corner. We have compiled our favorite Barcelona bakeries in this short list, however there are likely many more that are undiscovered, so don’t be afraid to experiment! You will likely not be disappointed.
If you’re looking to pick up some bread for a picnic or simply something to snack on while you go sightseeing, Turris is the place for you. Offering one of the best bread selections in town, your next stop should be ham and cheese at a local market, followed shortly by lunchtime.
