Subject: Re: Re: Barcelona in November
Dear Edna

We stayed at the Colon hotel last September. I am not sure if it is the same as the Regina Colon. Ours was in the Gothic quarter and our excellent room overlooked the Cathedral. I would recommend it highly. (Colon - Av. Catedral, 7 - Tel 93/ 301-1404)

We had a superb dinner at Botafumeiro recommended by the Concierge. Specializing in fish &seafood, the food was delicious and the local wine was pleasant. Gran de Gracia, 81 tel: 93/ 218 42 30 Reservations a must.

The best tapas bar, by far, was Cal Pep in Placa de les Olles, 8 Tel 93/ 319 6183. It is a few blocks from Las Ramblas down near the waterfront. Hard to find but worth the effort. Just sit at the bar and have anything they serve. You will not be disappointed. For lunch - open Tues - Sat - get there early otherwise you will wait in line.

Have a wonderful time - Barcelona is a favorite place of ours. If I can help with anything else, let me know.
