Barcelona, a photo a day

The 4 Cats

This is one of the better places to eat in Barcelona: els 4 Gats, the 4 cats. It is the place where Pablo Picasso had his first exhibition, as a 17 years old teenager. A restaurant, opened on june 12th 1897 by a former waiter of the famous “le chat noir”, the black cat restaurant in Paris. Other famous people used to hang around here as well, the ubiquitous Gaudi, Isaac Albeniz, and so many more.
It was too early, and therefore not open yet when I passed it, but I will most definitely go back and show you the fabulous interior. Meanwhile, have a virtual visit on their website, it is a WOW kind of place!

  8. «Louis» supposes that given this restaurant's history it is also expensive.

    Here's the answer to Qu'est-ce que c'est?.
