It might be a little odd to do so on a Monday morning, but I am going to suggest you incorporate some siesta time into your schedule. Here’s why: on Carrer Ferlandina 18, in what used to be a haberdashery shop, and where the original wooden furnishings have been (practically) left intact, you will find Siesta, a shop and gallery of objects and works of art made by artists.
These objects and works of art have been selected with the greatest care and exquisite taste by Siesta proprietress Mercedes, and which have been displayed around every nook and cranny of the space for best effect. I am delighted to share a selection of these with you in the following slideshow…
Gorgeous pieces, aren’t they? Siesta also hosts exhibitions every now and then, and one will be held shortly. Check out my Facebook page (you’ll find the link to the right of this blog post) for news on the date(s).
If you are visiting the Macba (or in the area) while in Barcelona, make sure you check out this delightful shop full of wonders, for it is but a stone’s throw from there.
