Now that summer is just around the corner, it seems that people are more inclined to be out and about on the streets. This is even more likely when we’re talking about a dynamic city like Barcelona that’s always buzzing.

The Font Màgica de Montjuïc is one of those unmissable spots from which to enjoy a unique spectacle. If you are staying at our boutique hotel on Parallel, you will be just a stone’s throw away from this magical “must see.”
The fondness to go for tapas and accompany them with a vermouth has settled permanently in many neighbourhoods of Barcelona.

If you are visiting Barcelona and you are planning to stay at our hotel, you cannot miss the vermouth time in Poble Sec!
To enjoy Barcelona from the heights, nothing better than going to one of the many viewpoints that are in the Catalan capital.

One of the most special is the Montjuïc viewpoint, located on the homonymous and most famous mountain in Barcelona.
