The Neighborhood Overveiw
Central and Wonderful neighborhood.
Great localtion, many Shops and Restaurants around, very quite street.
Carrer Petritxol, one of the most representative streets in Barri Gotic, Barcelona, stretches from Portaferrisa street (mentioned in the sign as the only exit for vehicles at the other end of the alley) and Plaça del Pi. It goes almost parallel to Las Ramblas (two blocks away). Very Famous because of xocolata amb xurros (churros consist of dough which is later fried and powdered with sugar, preferably to be dipped in hot chocolate) served at La Pallaresa, Petritxol 11 or at Dulcinea, Petritxol 2. But this road is not only about the pleasant smell of chocolate, it is is also home to several art galleries, particularly the Sala Parés, which was one of the first spots in Europe dedicated to art exhibitions and sales. Its collection contains the works of such great artists as Picasso and Santiago Rusiñol. The street is also famous for its prominent residents, such as the writer Àngel Guimerà. It was also Carrer del Pedritxol where the great opera singer Montserrat Caballé used to have her rehearsal studio. Nowadays, Carrer de Petritxol is still a favourite place of local artistic boheme and is often visited by tourists attracted by the tempting smells of chocolate and the unique atmosphere of the past.
