Barcelona is a city that keeps on surprising me. Although I have lived here since I was born, I always find new places, unknown corners to visit or buildings that I haven’t discovered and that leave me speechless. A real luxury! That's why I think I'm fully authorised to write one of those pretty city guides.… Lost In Team… I’m at your service :)!
One of those places I've been thrilled to discover is the Sant Pau modernist site. It is simply incredible. A real trip through time. So, if you want to make the most of your day, I recommend a visit with an audio-guide, so you do not miss a single detail.
After this plan to enrich your eyes and soul... one of the places to continue this trip full of charm is one of the most beautiful and exquisite hotels in the city, El Palace Barcelona.
Start of the route: Sant Pau Modernist SiteDestination: Hotel El Palace Barcelona Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 668. 08010 Barcelona
Duration of the route: 11 minutes
For those who know me, my bike is my shadow. And I could not love this route to El Palace more. I cycle along the street Sant Antoni María Claret until it connects with Paseo de San Juan. Among the trees, under the shade and heading towards the sea, I continue until I reach Plaza de Tetuán. I turn right onto the street Diputación, I go down the block of the street Bruc that crosses with Gran Vía de las Cortes Catalanas and I turn right again. There it is, the iconic red curtains of the great hotel welcome me.
The entrance is simply magnificent. Wherever you look, there is such a close attention to detail, and I think to myself... I can't spend another night in Barcelona without having woken up in one of its rooms!
Lift, floor 7 and… welcome to another world! Here El Palace boasts a 360º terrace that is idyllic, elegant and with an unbeatable atmosphere. In it I discover different areas where I can blend in, great music and some sunsets that live up to the place itself. A glass of BORN ROSÉ, a game of boules and watch the sun go down.
Pssst… On the terrace of El Palace you will find some steps that take you even higher up. Climb them and let me know what you think about this discovery. See you at the top!
