Fodor's Expert Review Casa Gispert

Sant Pere and Born-Ribera Food/Candy Fodor's Choice

On the inland side of Santa Maria del Mar, this shop is one of the most aromatic and picturesque in Barcelona, bursting with teas, coffees, spices, saffron, chocolates, and nuts. The star element in this olfactory and picturesque feast is an almond-roasting stove in the back of the store—purportedly the oldest in Europe, dating from 1851 like the store itself. Don't miss the acid engravings on the office windows or the ancient wooden back door before picking up a bag of freshly roasted nuts to take with you.
