Cafe in La Rambla & Barri Gòtic

Centuries of heavenly gastronomic tradition from across Spain are concentrated in this exquisite medieval space in the heart of the city. The ground-floor cafe is a dainty setting for decadent cakes and pastries, while descending into the underground chamber with its stone walls and flickering candles is like a trip into the Middle Ages.

Wherever you decide to sit, you'll also pass through the shop that sells sweets made by nuns in convents across the country – the marzipan from Toledo is irresistible.
