Jenny,

Surprisingly ... In Catalonia, we love Costa Brava and southern and northern Empòrda on the coast... we am also very fond of the historic city of Girona.

Thanks for posting your contribution.
Margi.

GRAVY,

Are you referring to a restaurant or a ski resort town in the mountains ?

La Boquería is in Lérida not Barcelona.

Kind regards.
Margaux.

I will have to give that a try. I remember liking Codorniu, years ago. I had completely forgotten about it.
