The drive from Barcelona to Roses, the closest town to El Bulli, takes about two hours (mostly a straight shot on the A7 autopista). Plan on staying overnight: dinner usually ends after 2 a.m. We chose the Almadraba Park Hotel, with views of the lovely Bay of Roses, and a sweet beachside restaurant where we had a light pre-Bulli lunch.
