Porxos d'en Xifré : Michelin's recommendations

After the discovery of America, many Catalans went there to make their fortune. Returning to Barcelona these «indianos», now influential figures built themselves magnificent houses. Case in point is Josep Xifré i Cases (1777-1856), a trader for his state who after having accumulated a fortune in Cuba, became the richest man in Barcelona. The group of Neo-classical arcaded buildings which he had built today home to a labyrinth of popular shops.
