About Plaza Virreina Barcelona

Views: 367. Updated: Sep 28, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Built in 1878 by the architect Josep Artigas. Plaza de la Virreina is tree lined square of the Gracia Neighbourhood and contains the Sant Joan Baptista Romanesque church dating from 1884.

This square is also a great place to eat out in any of the bars and restaurants.

In the Winter, late february, early march, the sqaure sets out long dining tables to host a calcots festival. Calcots are a seasonal vegetable like a cross between a leek and an onion. Tradition in Catalunya is to grill them on a barbeque and serve them wrapped in newspaper with a red coloured dipping sauce. This tradition is called a calcotada and the custom is to peal off the burnt outer leaves then dip the sugary root in the sauce and swallow it whole. It is a messy eating experience and bibs and gloves are normally provided!
