BEST HOMEMADE ICE CREAM SHOPS IN BARCELONA
Summer is here and it is very hot in Barcelona and thre is a constant influx of tourists. Why do tourists choose Barcelona for their holidays?
Firstly, it has some of the best beaches in Europe where you can relax and enjoy the fresh air. There are also tourist areas such as Barceloneta, Gracia, Las Ramblas etc, and especially the impressive buildings designed by Gaudi – one of his most famous being the Sagrada Familia. As in any other Spanish city there are tapas bars not to be missed in Barcelona . Even if you only have one chance to go during your stay you must eat at one of them. What I like most in the city during this hot period, however, is its homemade ice cream. Here we share with you some of the best homemade ice cream shops and parlours to try in Barcelona:
Gelateria Italiana (Placa de la Revolució 1)
This place is always easy to find because there is always a queue in front of the store. There is also a terrace in a nice square where you can relax with an ice cream. They offer different flavours of ice cream that shouldn’t be missed.
ARCOBALENO (Calle Ferlandina 35)
This place is run by Italians and all the ice cream is made according to a traditional recipe. Many say it is the best place for ice cream in Barcelona not only because of the ice cream, but also due to the friendly staff.
LA JIJONENCA (Av. Gaudí, 32)
It is located near the Sagrada Familia and they offer delicious ice cream. You will also find queues here, but it’s worth the wait.
AMORINO (Calle Gran de Gracia 53)
It was first opened in Paris and due to its popularity Amorino’s ice cream has expanded to several European countries. You can find Amorino branches everywhere in Barcelona and if you pass by one of them, make sure you check it out. It’s cheap and good value for money.
GIANGROSSI (Av. Diagonal 545 to 565)
Giangrossi homemade ice cream offers a wide variety of flavours – over 40 flavours are prepared daily with fresh milk and natural fruit. Don’t miss it!
Between visiting the Sagrada Familia and the Ramblas, nothing beats a good homemade ice cream. Each shop is unique and offer delicious varieties of homemade ice cream.
