When exploring Barcelona’s chic Carrer Sèneca, one finds a treasure trove of colorful boutiques, chic ateliers, and haute tables.
Lydia Delgado: This crimson-walled shop stocks Delgado’s signature black and ivory separates and knits.
Roig Robğ: Barcelona’s sophisticated set comes for the classic Catalan fare, such as fluffy buñuelos de bacalao (cod fritters) and Iberian suckling pig, served on a garden terrace. Lunch for two $120.
Nobodinoz: A well-curated collection of products for tots—playful floral-print suitcases; custom furniture—are hand-picked by French émigrée Murielle Bressan.
Galerğa Miquel Alzueta: Set in a former basement car-repair shop, the loftlike gallery showcases cutting-edge international and Spanish artists such as local painter Miguel Macaya.
Cucharada: Flowy 1970’s vintage caftans and cocktail dresses share the racks with Cucharada’s own line of handmade leather bags and accessories.
Ox Mobiliari: Two spacious floors house Midcentury Modern furniture and lighting, plus glass objets d’art. Look for curvaceous wooden chairs by Danish designer Hans Wegner.
Palau Antiguitats: Known for his discerning eye, art and antiques dealer Albert Martğ Palau just opened a gallery of rare prints by Spain’s modern and old masters, including Francisco de Goya.
