La Iguana is already a tradition for us, the best place to start with 4 non-stoping nights with many hours of live music and DJ's. A cozy bistrot with a wonderful wooden floor at 5 minutes walk from the main train station in town, Sants Estació. There you can have a cold drink or enjoy a delicious sandwich or some tapas, we love the cook, mmmhhhhhh! There are also some sofas for laying down if your trip has been tiring.
