I think the name of this place is Arlequi Mascares. It is a family owned business with a magnificent array of handmade masks. As you walk in it has an amazing ambiance. Seeing all the various masks on the walls gives a sense of magic....More

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
