My top 5 Barcelona souvenirs

El Traster
Maybe you are fond of tatty Flamencas or you think a Gaudi inspired toro is missing in your dining room. If you are like me, you probably like to have a little something from each of the places where you have been. But not anything goes. It must be something you can look at and remember the good times without feeling ashamed of having spent your money in creepy Chinese-made souvenirs.

If I were visiting Barcelona, I would buy these souvenirs:

-          A chocolate Barcelona pavement in Pastisseria Baylina (Passeig Sant Joan, almost in the corner with Carrer Provença, very near the Verdaguer Metro and in the way to Sagrada Familia). A similar and equally tasty option are the Gaudi chocolates boxes in Chocolatería Cacao Sampaka (in Carrer Consell de Cent, 292 very near Rambla de Catalunya).
-          A Barcelona Taxi reproduction in Kit-a-car (also in Passeig Sant Joan, but in the corner with Carrer Rosselló). It is a cheap and nice option. It is also a good present for kids. 
-          T-shirts in El Traster (a shop in Plaça Sant Agustí Vell and a good excuse to explore Barri de Sant Pere). T-shirts cost 12 €. They also have postcards, bags, knitted figures, and almost anything that's pretty and full of imagination).
Galeria Maxó
-          Galetes Trias Decorated biscuit boxes. This can be found in many shops. Among others, in El Corte Inglés. The biscuits are excellent and you can find an use for the box when the biscuits are over. 
-          Some piece of art in Galeria Maxó (in Portal Nou 29 also very near Plaça Sant Agustí Vell). Prices start at 22 euros for a small 3-D Barcelona door picture, so don't be afraid to go and see what they have. They are open every day from 11 to 21.30 h, so no excuse.
