Barcelona, a photo a day

Meson


Probably one of the tiniest bars I’ve ever seen. The entrance is 1m60 high, 5 foot 4. It is a meson. A meson is, according to Wordreference:  establecimiento de decoración típica donde se sirven comidas y bebidas, a place with typical decoration, where drinks and food are served. This one is lost somewhere in the maze of small streets composing the Barri Gotic, the old town. It wouldn’t be out of place in southern Spain.

  5. Goodness, I'm going to have to bend over to enter. But as long as I don't hit the ceiling while inside, and the beer and tapas are good, count me in! 🙂
