Joan Palà Argemí is a 24 years old from Barcelona, with a degree in Tourism Management and a non-stop Instagram addiction. To Joan, Barcelona is gold. The city is a daily and constant feed of inspiration – with its narrow streets and crowded neighborhoods, with its beautiful parks and local small restaurants in the historical centre.
Here is his take on the city:
When I started doing photography, I went to the Bunquers of El Carmel in Barcelona and I fell in love with that place. The sky, the city, the sea, the mountains and the buildings. They make a perfect combo to give you an impressive view of Barcelona.
Flax & Kale
It’s not that I follow a super healthy diet but I value good food. Flax & Kale brings you the chance to try tasty food mixed with healthy ingredients. It’s this new thing called the Flexitarian way of life. The location is perfect. The decorations, people and vibes make you feel like you are traveling out of Barcelona to the typical New York spot. Also, I must admit that you can hear people from all over the world, which is kind of nice too.
This place is the Museum of Contemporary art in Barcelona.
It is an undiscovered gem in Barcelona for tourists, but not for locals. There are skaters, long boarders, people from the net and some of the best photographers.
It is a really cool place to go and waste time.
Another place which I feel is really mine is the Gothic Quarter. This is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. A part of Ciutat Vella. Close to the Mediterranean seafront and stretching from La Rambla. The area is one of the best in Barcelona. I love getting lost in the warren of tiny and shaded passageways.
