Valentine’s Day Barcelona

valentine’s day barcelonaValentine’s Day is a special celebration, as you know, on February 14.

Generally, the lovers express their love sending presents, flowers, swets, and some of them, going to special site in the night. 

In this order, we can suggest you a good thing to enjoy with your lover (if you remember an love ABBA):

  • The Barcelona Teatre Musical is now showing the Catherine Johnson musical with the ABBA songs we all know, like Dancing Queen, Chiquitita, Voulez-Vous and Take A Chance On Me. (C Guàrdia Urbana, 7 – Sants-Montjuïc)

But while I’ve been looking for special activities for this day, I saw an interesting article in ABC, in which TERESA DE LA CIERVA, MARTA BARROSO, PATRICIA ESPINOSA DE LOS MONTEROS talks about a study of the Valentine’s day traditions:

 “The fragrances and the oils for the bath, among other products of beauty, do not fail, but either the romantic escapes. According to the study of Expedia, the best thing to reinforce a relation is a trip; that said 61% of the people at least. 41% of the women (always more positive) thinks that it helps to recover “the flame” (39% declare that when finalizing a trip has returned to fall in love with its pair), and the men, (“always so optimistic”), consider that “he is not going to suppose no change” (42%)… What yes it is certain is that it does not solve a crisis (only 6% take advantage of it to solve problems). One of the tactically important points is the planning of the trip. Women (36%) gives to much more importance him to the details whereas to them (23%) she costs to them more to put itself in agreement on the budget…”

What do you think about this study? And what you prefeer your lover do tomorrow?

Barcelona by night


At, we meet an interesting article, that show the things and places that we can do in Barcelona. Barcelona by night is too:

“For those in search of an enjoyable night out on the town, the problem might be choosing what would be most to your liking from among all that Barcelona has to offer. To start off, you could drop into one of the city’s many champagne or cocktail bars. The night, however, might also begin at a good restaurant, choosing from among a wide and varied range that includes authentic food from around the world, in addition to the traditional Mediterranean cuisine of the city.

For dancers, everywhere around the city are found discotheques, clubs and dance halls. For those who prefer to enjoy their music without having to move their bodies, the best thing to do is head off to one of the city’s many live music clubs, offering almost daily shows in every style, from jazz and blues to African music, classical and flamenco. Visitors who feel the need to express their own musical talents can try out a karaoke club. Nor should we forget about other attractions of Barcelona by night: the theatre, the cinema.”
