LA FONT DE GAT: Secret Terrace in Montjuïc

Hidden in the park of Montjuïc and surrounded by gardens with the city at its feet, the terrace of La Font del Gat is the main charm of this small and informal café-restaurant that many people in Barcelona do not know. Open from Tuesday to Sunday at noon (menu of the day) and in the evening they are open for groups. They have an original menu and a surprisingly sophisticated cuisine. In addition, it is a terrace with history. Its building was built by the famous architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch and a few meters from the Font del Gat.

ANTIC TEATRE: discover this terrace in Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera

Just by climbing the small stairs located in Verdaguer i Callís street, 12, you escape from the big city to enter another dimension. More than a terrace, it is a garden in the middle of the city that hides behind the walls of the theater. With vegetation and anarchic organization crowned by a large central tree, there seems to be no stress, only good vibes and the desire to laugh and have fun. Drinks and snacks are available (but no lunch or dinner). Undoubtedly one of our favorites. The only ‘downside’ is that it is somewhat punished by tourism. Open every day (check opening hours on their website).
