After eating, we recommend walking all the way up Rambla de Catalunya. This pedestrian street runs from Plaça Catalunya to Avinguda Diagonal, with a view of Tibidabo Mountain in the near distance. Rambla Catalunya is teeming with shops and mansions. In 2010, the city converted the street into an open-air museum, with temporary exhibitions of such renowned artists as Rodin.
Between the streets Diputació and Consell de Cent, you'll find the bookshop Bertran on the left-hand side. We recommend stepping in and having a look at the garden in the back.
At the intersection of Condell de Cent and Aragó, you won't want to miss Forn de Sant Jaume, a typical Barcelona pastry shop with mouth-watering chocolate croissants (1,80?).
At Carrer Aragó, between Rambla and Passeig de Gràcia, you'll find the famous facade of the Antoni Tapies Foundation.
Keep walking until you reach Avinguda Diagonal.
