El Asador de Aranda

El Asador de Aranda Review

It's a hike to this immense palace a few-minutes walk above the Avenida Tibidabo metro station—but worth it if you're in upper Barcelona. The kitchen specializes in Castilian cooking, with cordero lechal (roast suckling lamb), morcilla (black sausage), and pimientos de piquillo (sweet red peppers) as star players. The Art Nouveau details here—carved-wood trim, stained-glass partitions, engraved glass, Moorish archways, and terra-cotta floors—belie the fact that this extravagantly beautiful building was originally a nunnery, funded by wealthy members of the Catalan industrial bourgeoisie as a place to stash their errant daughters.
