I took Chef Amelia's class with 5 girl friends and it was one of the best things we did in BCN. Amelia was great, loved buying from the market, food was delicious, wine plentiful and the whole experience was something I would do again.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
