The Well & Come Boutique Hotel in Barcelona reports on famous stories inspired by the city

In this month’s blog of our boutique hotel, we present a list of interesting films and novels that are related to Barcelona. When spending a few profitable days among friends, or when you visit the Sagrada Familia, after reading this post, you will surely see the Catalan capital with different eyes!

The best films about Barcelona

Let’s start with some feature films in which the city of our Boutique Hotel is the stage, or plays the leading role: The first is a Spanish film from 2017, directed by Ramón Salazar with Bárbara Lennie and Susi Sánchez as main actors: “La enfermedad del domingo” (Sunday’s Illness). It tells the story of Anabel, the mother, who receives an unexpected visit from Chiara, her daughter, whom she abandoned more than 30 years ago, asking her to spend 10 days together.

“Profesione: reporter” (The Passenger), from 1975, is an Italian film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, starring Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider, and a true masterpiece. Part of the story unfolds in the setting of La Pedrera (Casa Milà) and other emblematic corners of the city. Almost like an ode to the genius of Gaudí, his works gain prominence in the film, until they become just another character. The roof terrace of La Pedrera, the last house built by the brilliant Catalan architect, has been used as a set in other film productions, such as: Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (2008), and Susan Seidelman’s “Gaudi Afternoon” (2001).

“L’auberge espagnole” (The Spanish Apartment), a 2002 film by Cédric Klapisch, is another clear example that shows that many directors think of our city as the perfect setting for their films. It’s a playful comedy about the experiences of several Erasmus students. The chronicles of their lives, and the cultural differences that lead to many hilarious misunderstandings, are set in some of the most charming corners of Barcelona.

Novels in which Barcelona is part of the plot

In one of our last posts, we talked about Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s literary passion for Barcelona, and how his novels have encouraged readers around the world to get to know the city. Today we want to talk about some other great novels taking place in Barcelona.

If you are passionate about reading, and have had a look at our summary of the Sant Jordi festival, which this year was exceptionally held in June, you will know that there are many tales and writers that focus on the streets of Barcelona. Some stories talk about the post-war period, such as “La plaça del Diamant” (The Time of the Doves), Mercè Rodoreda’s most popular novel of 1962.  Translated into more than 40 languages, this story made its way to the cinema and theatre on several occasions.

Other authors are more inclined towards comedy, like Eduardo Mendoza, who takes his readers for a walk along the Paseo de Gracia and the Diagonal in an attempt to provoke a sincere smile. We can discover the author’s special connection with Barcelona in “No Word from Gurb“, and above all in “The Mystery of the Enchanted Crypt“. Of this novel, from 1978, complicated, with an unusual hero, the author said that it was his favourite, and it must be true for the story wanders all over Barcelona!

Book your room in our boutique hotel in Barcelona

If after reading or watching some of these masterpieces, you feel the urge to discover this fabulous city, do not hesitate to book your room in our Well & Come Boutique Hotel in Barcelona. We want to turn your stay in Barcelona into an unforgettable experience, worthy of inspiring new stories.

Discover Barcelona with the daily tours of Well & Come, your favourite boutique hotel in Barcelona

We’re in love with our city, and it shows! This became evident to all our readers after the last blog post about our facilities. And so you also knew about our efforts to ensure that you are always satisfied, not only while you are with us at the hotel, but throughout your entire stay in Barcelona. To this end, we now propose a selection of the best routes and tours, walking or driving, to explore the city first hand.

The best walking tours in Barcelona’s city centre

Our route begins in the heart of the city: Plaza de Cataluña, daily starting point for thousands of tourists on their tours of the city. Crossing the famous Rambla, we arrive at the “barrio gótico” (gothic quarter), perhaps the most attractive of Barcelona’s districts. Here we propose an itinerary that includes various indispensable stops, such as: Barcelona Cathedral, the Church of El Pino, and Plaza del Rey, a most amazing square, surrounded by monumental buildings that once were the symbol of the power and medieval grandeur of the city. Then there is also the City History Museum, of which we spoke in a previous blog.  This interesting visit will take you back to the first 1500 years of the city’s existence. Furthermore, in this district you can enjoy the commercial and gastronomic proposals of a large number of bars, restaurants and shops, all of which will provide you with relaxing and leisurely moments on your route.

 

Hop-on hop-off in Barcelona

Other, more adventurous routes, will take you to places further away from the city and its hustle and bustle. One of the most interesting is a 2-hour tour of the sumptuous and iconic “masías” (country manors) in the district of Horta, on the outskirts of Barcelona, but easily accessible by bus (line 5). Nature lovers will be delighted with the many hiking trails in the Montseny Natural Park.

A more demanding tour, which brings us near the border with the neighbouring province of Girona, is a spectacular circular route that begins and ends in Sant Bernat, and includes the ascent of Mount Matagalls.

Other places worth visiting, with many interesting routes in the middle of nature, are the Garraf Natural Park, near Sitges, and the Montnegre Corredor Natural Park, near the coast.

Surely our routes and tours made you want to discover every corner of our beautiful city, right?

You are most welcome, and we promise you many interesting stories to live in the city that never ceases to surprise its visitors!

The most literary side of Barcelona presented by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Barcelona is one of the few cities in the world which holds such a special charm. Strolling along its streets and exploring all its corners invite both visitors and residents to discover its rich history which has made it one of the most visited cities in the world.

Barcelona as a city is simply magical and one of the most highly acclaimed writers of the contemporary era, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, has shown us in many of his works a city which is hard to forget and one which is well worth visiting.

 

“The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. A Barcelona with history

In “La sombra del viento” (The Shadow of the Wind), the main character Daniel Sempere explores some of the most emblematic spots of the Condal City in one of the most fascinating stories which has been written about Barcelona in recent years.

Set in the first half of the 20th century, Daniel visits some of the most photographed enclaves of Barcelona such as the Plaza Real, which when the story is set, is one of the most luxurious areas of the city and where some of Daniels most bleak moments take place.

As the story develops references are made to the “Els Quatre Gats”, a homage by Zafón to the artists which invaded Barcelona, which could have been the case for Picasso. The Catalan café was a popular meeting point for artists, intellectuals and the rest of the Bohemian world.

In ‘The Shadow of the Wind’, Daniel pursues the story of Julián Carax, a failed writer whose final destiny is unknown, and he intends to find out. Carax’s life was full of mystery, disappointment, fear and misfortune…And he became the most intriguing character in the whole story.

Carax spent his childhood in the Fortuny Hat Shop, in the shadow of a father who didn’t love him and a mother who was unable to protect him as much as she would have liked to, The Fortuny Hat Shop in reality is known as ‘la Sombrerería Obach’ in Barcelona, and is on the Calle del Call, in the old Jewish district of Barcelona.

In ‘The Shadow of the Wind’, everything comes to an end within the walls of the Palacete Aldaya, the centre of all the action; in a Barcelona full of stately homes that greet visitor and invites them to return again and again.

Our boutique hotel in Barcelona will be giving you all the details of the Three Kings parade

The most magical night of the year is the 5th of January, especially for the little ones of the family, as it is when the Three Kings arrive: The majestic kings Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar.

We want to tell you all about the arrival of the Magic Kings and the grand parade, which is held every year in Barcelona, where you will also find Well&Come, our boutique hotel.

 

Who are the Three Magic Kings?

With this celebration comes a tradition in which as Christmas approaches, children across the country write a letter to the Three Magic Kings. A time of excitement and fantasy for the little ones in the family. In the letter the children describe how they have behaved over the year and ask for the gifts that they would like to receive on the 6th of January.

Each child can choose the format and mode of delivery that they want, of course with the help of the adults. After this, they must wait for a visit from the magic kings to deliver their presents on the night of the 5th to the 6th of January. At Well&Come, our boutique hotel in Barcelona we recommend that all families leave something to eat and drink for the kings and their camels to enjoy.

 

Boutique Hotel in Barcelona: sending a letter to the Magic Kings

The first parade in Spain was held in 1866 in Alcoy, Alicante and after then this tradition spread across the whole country. In Barcelona, where you will find Well&Come, our boutique hotel, every year there is a big parade which passes through the main streets of the Condal City.

 

Experience the Three Kings parade with our boutique hotel in Barcelona

Accompanied by their staff and helpers, the Three Magic Kings parade on big floats through the city throwing sweets to all the children, representing the journey which they travelled to Bethlehem. A truly exciting moment for the children as the fantasy fills in their eyes!

At our boutique hotel in Barcelona, we want to show you the route for the 2020 parade so that you can follow it at your own pace, at the time you want and in the spot you choose. Also, we are located next to the Verdaguer metro, only a 20-minute walk or 10 minute metro ride from the Plaça Catalunya where the Three Kings parade will make a big stop.

 

Discover more about the ‘Roscón de Reyes’

During any traditional celebration gastronomy plays a big role. Food brings together families and friends all around one big table to celebrate and enjoy themselves. On the 6th of January after receiving gifts from the Three Kings, it is tradition to eat the famous Roscón de Reyes.

It is a toroid-shaped bun, decorated with slices of candied or glazed fruit. It can be filled with cream, custard, chocolate or truffle. We highly recommend trying the ‘roscón’ if you haven’t before, so that you can have the full experience during the Three Kings celebration in our city.

Our boutique hotel in Barcelona will be explaining how to spend Christmas in the Condal City

The time of year when the streets are dressed in coloured lights has arrived. In the special corners of Barcelona, where you will find Well&Come, our boutique hotel, you will find trees decorated with stars, baubles and decorations…The time of year when walking through the city in the cold is actually quite pleasant. Yes, it’s time for Christmas.

At our boutique hotel in Barcelona we wanted to tell you in this blog all the things, traditions and places where it is essential to spend at least a few minutes, to say that you have lived an authentic Barcelonan Christmas and don’t miss any of the Christmas fun in the Condal City.

 

What can Well&Come recommend for you?

It is not worth spending this festivity in the city and not having gone to a traditional Christmas market. In Barcelona there are many themed markets during this time of year where you can enjoy a festive and magical atmosphere and where you can also buy all kinds of decorations for your tree. The best market is the Fira de Santa Llúcia and also the oldest in the city, located on the Avenida de la Cathedral. Another traditional market is the Sagrada Familia Market where you can enjoy the atmosphere alongside Gaudí’s famous basilica, located only 10 minutes on foot from our boutique hotel in Barcelona.

One of the most common destinations to visit in Barcelona, where you will find Well&Come, our boutique hotel, is the Tibidabo park. This emblematic amusement park also dresses up at Christmas offering shows and activities for all the family during the festivities.

The Poble Espanyol becomes an incredible Christmas scene. There is a big Christmas market magnificently decorated offering traditional gastronomy and crafts and filled with children’s activities. What’s most visited is Father Christmas’ House and the Three Wise Men from the East.

A fun and entertaining plan for the whole family is…taking a stroll! Enjoying a cold, but very magical stroll under the lights and all the Christmas decorations is a tempting plan for everyone. The Christmas spirit and its welcoming atmosphere can be felt in the streets.

And after a wander around you want to get the cold off your backs, Well&Come, our boutique hotel in Barcelona, recommends one of our favourite past times, going for churros and hot chocolate. A classic which must be enjoyed at the Granja Viader, el Dulcinea or el Petrixol.

 

Essential Catalonian traditions to celebrate at Christmas

What most characterises each place in the world is its culture and traditions. We want to tell you about the most outstanding traditions in the Condal City to celebrate during this time.

  • In every nativity scene in Catalonia it is essential to have a Caganer. It is a symbol of good luck; his faeces fertilises the land and in turn that brings luck for the upcoming year.
  • As we have mentioned above, and as happens in many other regions, the “firas de Navidad” are perfect to visit for buying everything to do with the festivities.
  • The Tió de Nadal is a magical trunk that days before Christmas Eve knocks at the doors to ask for shelter. It must be covered with a blanket so that it does not get cold and you must feed it until the 24th, the moment when he shows his thanks by “defecating” sweets and gifts.
  • The 26th of December is the celebration of Saint Steven in Catalunya, it is typical during this day to eat homemade cannelloni made from leftovers from the previous days.
  • L’Home dels Nassos is a mythical character who is very famous for his big nose and who only appears the 31st of December. Something to amuse the little ones.

Cava, a classic beverage which you can enjoy on our rooftop in Barcelona

At Well and Come, our boutique hotel in Barcelona, we are so thankful to be located in such a beautiful city. We are surrounded by a rich culture and heritage and we get to enjoy it every single day. In this blog article we want to share with you more about the origins of one of our favourite Catalonian products and the best way to enjoy it! Are you intrigued? Keep reading for more information!

 

An authentic Catalonian product at our boutique hotel in Barcelona

Cava is a beverage which is enjoyed not just by Spanish residents, but by a multitude of people from across the world. Did you know that this well-loved product was invented in Catalonia, the home of our boutique hotel in Barcelona? It was first produced in the 1870’s by Josep Raventós, who formulated the product after returning to Catalonia from a trip to one of the largest wine making countries in the world, France. Cava is a very delicate and balanced blend of the grape varieties Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo.

For a very long time this sparkling wine was classified as “Champaña” until the 1970’s when authorities wanted to restrict exactly what products could be branded as champagne. Following this reclassification of sparkling wine, the term Cava was created. The word itself was chosen not for the origin of its grapes or due to a historical tale, it was simply because the wine was matured in stone cellars which in Spanish are known as ‘cavas’. In 1970 the product achieved recognition and was given the protective status of Cava D.O. (Denomination of Origin), this means that the product is protected by a series of quality controls that ensure it is of an optimum grade.

 

The rooftop of our boutique hotel in Barcelona

So, you may be wondering, why have Well and Come, boutique hotel in Barcelona, chosen to focus on Cava for this blog article? Well, we believe that it is the best drink to accompany the incredible views which you can see from our rooftop in Barcelona.

On our rooftop we have a spectacular swimming pool, from which you can enjoy panoramic views of the Tibidabo, the most famous mountain in this area. As well as our rooftop swimming pool in Barcelona we have comfortable seating areas with sofas, armchairs and even water beds so that when you’re enjoying your ice-cold glass of Cava, you will feel completely relaxed.
