There are 5 main types (as mar i muntania),
poultry and fruit, fish and nuts. (Soffregit) fried anion, tomato and garlic,
(samfaina), suffregit plus red pepper and aubergine or courgette, (Picada),
based on ground almonds, usually with garlic, parsley, pine or hazel nuts, and
sometimes breadcrumbs) etcetera.... if you want I'm able to send you some
typical dish. I suggest to start with Amida Catalane, arṛst a la cassola or a
la Catalana,dessert crema catalana with red wine. At the end coffee.Spring and
early summer is the best time to be in Barcelona. The weather is usually
pleasantly warm, the number of other tourists manageable and the city humming.
Barcelona offers a rich palette of sights with something to interest
everyone-from Picasso to history, from the grand seafaring museum to the
waxworks, from the aquarium to the monument of the Modernitas.To see a decent
chunk of Barcelona and give it any justice you will need a good week and
plenty of energy. If you visit Barcelona you can see "Death in the
Afternoon" this is not a favourite Catalan theme, but there are some
fight on Sunday afternoon at the Placa Monumental, on the Carrer de la Marina
(metro: Monumental). The "fun" usually starts at 6 pm.Toro,Toro,Toro......for
many, bullfighthing a sickening affair, others view it as a noble battle.
Whichever way you look at it, there is little doubt about the cruelty of it,
nor about the risks that bullfighters(toreros)run. The corrida(bullfight)is a
spectacle with a long history, it is not, as some suggest, simply a ghoulish
alternative to the slaughterhouse. Aficionados maintain that the bull is
better off dying at the hands of matador(killer)than in the matadero(abattoir).
