Eating and drinking is a big event for the people of Catalonia, in fact the city basically shuts down between the hours of 2-4 PM so that the people of Barcelona can sit and enjoy a meal in their beautiful city. Resulting from this love of cuisine, Barcelona has become synonymous with Gaudi architecture and high-quality restaurants. Because of its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona cuisine reflects the culture of the region, using fresh fish, vegetables and olive oil to create a delicious and unique style of cuisine.
