Guía de la ciudad de Barcelona Las mejores cosas para ver y hacer en Barcelona

Els Quatre Gats

Barcelona is replete with historical spots. While visiting these places you might get a bit hungry and tired. Instead of going to modern touristic restaurant, we advise you to visit 4 GATS (Els Quatre Gats), which is the famous piece of Barcelona folklore. This bar and restaurant had been a haven for famous people at the beginning of 20th century.

It was opened on June 12th 1897 in the Montisió Street in a building that was designed by the architect Puig I Cadafalch. Till 1903 4 GATS was operating not only as a café and cabaret, but also as an artistic place for local Bohemia. Moreover, the first exhibition of Picasso´s works was put on here.

The restaurant was reestablished in 1978. It became a touristic Mecca gaining a name of must-visit place in Barcelona.

Some people prefer to go there just for a cup of coffee, which is said to be the best in the city. But it is advisable to take a lunch or dinner there as the local cuisine should be tried in a place that holds a certain significance to the city.

Els Quatre Gats maintain its ambiance of its earlier years and serve as a reminder of what life was like during the end of the 19th century. And like in old times a pianist accompany your dinner.

Come to Els Quatre Gats and feel the atmosphere of the past.
