Papiol Catalonia

Is only 18 kilometers North West from Barcelona.

I am visiting my friend Antonio, who introduced me to his friend Dani, who invited me to his farm and to meet his family. Where I found strong Catalonian traditions.

Farm house, the original part is 300 years old 

Simple Catalonian lunch (They told me)
They put me to shame as they could all speak, Catalan, French, Spanish and English.


If you ever visit Catalonia, you definitively should taste the local wine… using a porró, of course!
