Away from the crowds, but just a convenient subway ride to the centre, in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, more than anywhere else in the city, you can experience the fascinating and surprising multicultural hodgepodge that is Barcelona. People from all over the world have made Hospitalet their home and that shows especially in the variety of cuisines on every corner. An evening ‘’treasure hunt’’ for dinner will uncover loads of hidden culinary gems. Stroll through the outdoor market on a weekend morning and take in the local and authentic atmosphere. Maybe that will make you, too, think about sticking around for a while longer.
