This weekend, had the privilege of traveling from Barcelona to the historic city of Girona, Spain. While in this gorgeous town that felt like a movie set--- if you would like to see the city click HERE --- we discovered one of the best coffeeshops in the world - Espresso Mafia.
Not only is the coffee incredibly smooth and house roasted, but the shop is absolutely fantastic and biker friendly-- but really. Started by an amazing couple Christian and Amber Meier. Christian is a professional cyclist with a passion for coffee who decided to start this coffeeshop along with their other coffeeshop La Fabrica in the heart of Girona, Spain. Even with our brief time in Girona, we could instantly tell that Espresso Mafia was the place to be as 6 or 7 professional bikers stopped in for a fresh cup early in the morning.
Not only is the decor absolutely fantastic, but the people are fantastic and make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door.
Do yourself a favor and go try Espresso Mafia on your trip to the gorgeous city of Girona!
I love this city! If you are a history buff- you would too! Filled with gorgeous little streets, ancient Roman ruins along the Golden coast, Tarragona is one for the books.
We took a day trip excursion from Barcelona to Tarragona - perfect place to visit if you are spending a week or so in Barcelona as it was only an hour drive away.
A cat in the midst of the ancient Roman ruins - that was interesting!
The Catedral de Tarragona is one of the most lovely and intricately designed cathedrals in all of Catalonia. It was actually built upon the foundations of a Roman temple dedicated to Zeus under the reign of Julius Caesar.
Tarragona was the oldest Roman settlement on the Iberian Peninsula and became CAPITAL of the Roman province of Hispania Tarraconensis during the Roman Empire. We walked on the ancient ruins of the old Roman circ- where they held chariot races of fire on the tracks.
If you can imagine, these streets used to be the very foundation of the Roman circ which held the greatest chariot races in all of Spain - couldn't feel any further away from Nashville right now - Roman ruins in Spain ha!
