Valentine’s Day in Barcelona
What is considered by many to be the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day, is just around the corner. We know that not everyone shares the same romantic spirit whether it’s due to the fact that they don’t have time or simply because they are unable to think of the perfect way of winning the heart of their partner. Thus, we have a few suggestions for those who haven’t planned the romantic day of the year down to the last detail.
To start the morning off
How does waking up and enjoying a romantic breakfast in bed without having to prepare it sound? Because there is no better way to start the day than with breakfast in bed with your partner. There are various companies that are dedicated exclusively to preparing the perfect breakfast of your choice, whether it’s with a rose, a cuddly toy or a card with a romantic message all wrapped up in a beautiful basket which will be delivered to your door.

In Todo Rosas you can get all sorts of floral items such as flowers, centrepieces, and ornamentation in the outskirts of Barcelona.Interflora will attentively send you all kinds of baskets and flowers whether it’s with a little romantic touch or a bottle of champagne or wine.
We recommend a romantic stroll through Montjuíc, where you can wander around the extensive parks surrounded by trees, the of museums, the Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum and Pueblo Español which we lead you to various scenic lookouts where you can admire some stunning views of Barcelona and the sea from the top of Montjuíc Mountain.
A walk along the beach may sound a tad cliché but it’s a classic. If Barcelona has anything, aside from its architecture it has its beaches. Thus, if it’s not too cold in the morning on the 14th, we recommend you take a nice romantic stroll along the Barcelona coast and enjoy an aperitif in one of the many restaurants or beach bars situated along the beach if you fancy it.
A stroll around the Horta Labyrinth Park. There is nothing like getting lost in the lush and leafy Horta Labyrinth, the oldest garden in Barcelona, situated in Horta-Guinardó in the proximity of the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There is a neoclassic and other romantic garden where losing yourself with your partner will truly be an experience for the senses. In addition, if you fancy immersing yourself in a wilder and more natural world you can always head down to the Collserola Natural Park, which is quite a large space situated near the Labyrinth Park. Where: C/Germans Desvalls 0. How to get there: Metro L3 Fontana/L6 Gracia.
If what you preferred to do was go out for a romantic stroll with your partner and breakfast seemed quite a long time ago then how does a romantic candle-lit dinner involving some exquisite food and champagne at home with all kinds of flowers sound? You can get all this and more by contacting the Barcelona company In la Teva Cocina, where they prepare high quality home made food that they will deliver to your door because as they say, the way to someone’s heart is their stomach.
