The concert takes place on 24 th of October at Sala Razzmatazz and the tickets cost 35 €.
Highly recommendable to drop by, these guys absolutely know what they are doing. Beware of their depressive vibes though! If you are perceptive to this kind of stuff, deep autumn depression is guaranteed.
Parque del Laberinto de Horta
Take advantage of beautiful October weather Barcelona is pampering us with. Parque del Laberinto de Horta is an adorable park stationed a 5-minute walk away from the Mundet metro station. There, the gardens are remarkably intact, shaded by oaks, laurels and
an ancient sequoia. Best of all, the maze, an ingenious puzzle that intrigues those brave enough to try it. There is a lovely view of the city from the top so make your way up there. Pack a lunch (nearby stone tables provide a handy picnic site) and a camera (especially if you are Instagram freak) and accumulate positive vibes coming from within.
It’s a great place to stroll, unwind and take some great photos. Entrance fee is ridiculously cheap for such a beautifully maintained park, plus, on Sundays the entrance is free. On paying days, last entry is one hour before sunset.
Pay a visit to Picasso Museum
The museum covers different stages in the career and creativity of the Artist. The progression from his earlier works, sophisticated ceramic works and his fascinating reinterpretations of Las Meninas will bring your appreciation for Picasso to the next level.. Even if you belive you are not a devoted fan of Picasso, you might change this idea after visiting the museum.
Admission ticket for general collection is 11 € , for youngsters between 18-25, it is 7 € . You should know about free of charge times on Thursdays from 6pm to 9:30pm, but make sure you book a slot online. Every first Sunday of the month, from 9am to 7pm the entrance is also free.
The address is Montcada, 15-23. Get there by bus (H14, 120 or D20) or by metro (L3:Liceu).
La Boqueria Market
This market is a great way to immerse yourself in the foodie scene of Barcelona
“Just Wow” is probably the best way to describe this place. La Boqueria is a world class fresh food market filled with everything you could possibly imagine, located right off of Las Ramblas, in the heart of Barcelona. It’s the best place for mid-day snacks or lunch. Go with an empty stomach and some patience for the crowds and you won’t be disappointed. From the smell of the array of spices to the color of vegetables this market is a must experience.
Life-hack: The deeper inside, the cheaper the prices. Beware of pickpockets!
Some Jazz in Jamboree
If you’re looking for a night of Jazz in Barcelona, Jamboree is your first option to enjoy a great set of Jazz music. Jamboree, which means “tribal reunion” in Zulu, is one of the city’s jazz landmarks, responsible for bringing famed jazz musicians to Barcelona. The club is located in
Plaza Reial, 17 and consists of lots of locals and foreigners mingling and dancing together.
Before you go, check their website for more info about the upcoming events. Our favorite for this week is some nice jazz vibes from the Taiwanese vibraphone player Yuhan Su and her team on Friday. The ticket is 18 € if you buy on site and 16€ on line.
Plaza Real is a center of good, bad and ugly in Barcelona. Don’t be too nonchalant while having fun.
Enjoy your week!
