The terrace of more than 350m2 offers a stunning panoramic view of Barcelona while tasting the culinary gastronomic food of Ramon Freixa such as salads, sandwiches and cocktails. This space is preferentially reserved to hotel guests but could also be booked exclusively for private events.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
