Visit Barcelona also needs relax moments. A good option, especially now that the cold is coming, is going to have a cup of hot chocolate at Petritxol Street, in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
Take chocolate at Petritxol Street is a typical activity among Barcelona citizens. Petritxol Street is located near La Rambla. However, walking down the street Petritxol is like returning to the past. Despite being always pretty crowded is a quiet place. It is a narrow pedestrian street. There are many art galleries, clothing shops, and two famous “chocolate bars” (in Barcelona also called “granges”): Dulcinea and La Pallaresa.
Dulcinea and La Pallaresa are always full of people and the most common is that it also has enough people queuing in the street. It is typical to eat a cup of chocolate with sponge fingers, a Swiss chocolate with “churros” or simply a dish of cream.
If after cup of chocolate you want to burn a few calories, we recommend you down the entire street to the Pi Square to visit the beautiful Gothic Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi. Then you can continue walking down Las Ramblas, right next door.
