La Bastarda


Some bars and restaurant really have strange names… Does this one need any translation? I doubt it, as it is a very international word. Wonder what’s the story behind this one! It was closed when we passed it, so we couldn’t ask. Next time!

  1. By using Google I found out that “your” La Bastarda is a very special place; must be worth visiting 😀

  2. I wonder if the explanation could possibly be as colorful as your image.

  3. In art and lettering the creator of the italic style during the Italian Renaissance was Arrighi. And Palatino came along with another similar style.

    The Spaniard, Francisco Lucas, had a more modern style and it wasn't so stiff and rigid. His style was called “Bastarda” because it wasn't exactly like the others. I suppose there is a restaurant with similar fare in the area and for that reason this name.

  5. Well, certainly the name draws attention and must be good from the marketing point of view! 🙂
