A very cool magic store over 100 years old. We didn't buy anything but if you do they take you into the back and teach you how the trick works.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
