Lovely tradition for January 6th! When you find the little king in the cake, you are big king for the day. My favorite bakery for the Rascon: the King's Cake, Patisseria-Bomboneria Mont-Rodon. Address: Travessera de Les Corts 269. Expect a line out the door. Reserve now!
Folk art in terra cotta, found in thrift shops and antique stores. I am drawn to the farm animals, so my collection lacks a few important characters!
The civil war, a tangle of sides, and a mish-mash of motives. A lasting influence on Barcelona's story. Finally, easier to understand with help from guide. For an overview of this gruesome period, I liked best the tour conducted by Nick Lloyd of Iberia Nature. Cheat sheets provided! www.iberianature.com
