One of those unexpected finds - a step back in time. Good quality dried fruit , nuts & oils . Delicious local specialities - such as almond paste balls wrapped in toasted pine nuts . If you love your stomach , well worth a trip :)

I'm amazed that such places still exist today. This is a nice-little shop for spices, olive oil, nuts, vinegars, chocolate and other local specialties, with an old-world charm. The place has a vintage feel, and it is unfair to the place to not stop and check out everything on display. There are ingredients that you will feel compelled to buy... More

Step into this store and back in history. This store was a source for the citizens of Barcelona of all the great things being imported from the colonies. The roasted almonds are amazing as well as the chocolate dipped almonds. Super fun store.

This is a terrific spot, a wonderful place to buy gifts to bring home for yourself and others. In business since 1851, and conveniently located in Barcelona center near Santa Maria del Mar church, Casa Gispert is full of spices, coffees, teas, chocolates, sauces and other treats.

Needless to say, after being in business for so long, the staff is bi-lingual and very helpful. Best dried fruit I think I have ever found. The coffee is roasted and ground right there. Reasonable prices and a must visit if you are in the Old City. The aroma of this shop is marvelous.

This shop traces its roots back a century and a half. It has a huge assortment of nuts and teas and spices. It is a treat just to walk and take a deep breath. Other reviewers mention the roasting machine in the back and that is another reason to stop by. Make sure you take one of their business cards... More

We stopped here during a cycling tour of Barcelona and we loved it. Cute little shop with fantastic history. We were shown their roasting machine by an entertaining host. Had a delicious Horchata drink and purchased a few different types of nuts. Recommend a visit.

This store has been in business since 1851 and, in addition to selling a variety of wonderful nuts and fruits, they will show you the old roasters that they use to impart such great taste to their products. Friendly service, too.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
