It was well over a century ago that Stanley gave the famous greeting:

understand the significance of this encounter.

Stanley relates what happened next: “The expedition at last comes to a

halt... There is a group of the most respectable Arabs; and as I come

nearer, I see the white face of an old man among them... We raise our

hats, and I say, ‘Dr. Livingstone, I presume?’ and he says, ‘Yes.’”

Wandering around... The Neighbourhood

Located in the Eixample left district of Barcelona, next to the Sant

Antoni marketplace -designed by Antoni Rovira i Trias and built between

1872 and 1882- which is one of the oldest and most popular in the city,

especially with the secondhand book stalls that surround the building

on Sunday mornings.

It is bordered by the avenues of Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Ronda

de Sant Antoni and Avinguda del Paral.lel. The streets of Sant Antoni

follow the grid pattern prevalent in all of Eixample, except for a

central thoroughfare, the Avinguda de Mistral, built on the site of an

important medieval road which lead out of Barcelona. Another well-known

landmark of Sant Antoni is the bar called Els Tres Tombs, right next to

the market.

Just a few meters away is Parlament sreet, the new happening cluster, a

boiling pot where the utmost interesting things are arising. It all

started with the Federal Café, which opened at the end of 2010 and

reached almost legendary status, as among the most brilliant

entrepreneurs in town. In their case, they spotted a gap for breakfast

and brunch in Barcelona, and these days securing a seat either in the

café or on the roof terrace on a Saturday or Sunday is nigh-on

impossible.

Those who had been paying attention soon followed. Vinito, the little

wine shop that has been there considerably longer than Federal,

expanded on their two barrels outside where you could sip a glass while

you shopped and it’s become a popular spot for a crafty apero when out

shopping. Next door, Bar Calders commandeered a prime piece of terrace

on the alleyway, added a few pretty plants and hey presto, it’s the

spot du jour for a Sunday morning vermouth or a craft beer in the

evening with a couple of tapas like hummus and guacamole.

Tarannà Bar & Café opened later, with a style very similar to Federal.

Their windows also open onto the street so you can sit in them, they

have large communal tables, single-plate simple lunches like fresh

pasta stuffed with botifarra and a solid wine list.

And another new place, the Zuckerhaus opened selling old-fashioned,

home-baked cakes from a pretty cake shop on the corner. Manuela is half

German, half Italian and to the usual round-up of treats has added

black forest gateaux, fresh plum frangipane tart and pumpkin and apple

cake. This is the perfect place for an afternoon pick-me-up.

The Livingstone is our tribute to explorers... which is what all of us are, at

the end of the day...
