    Hello everyone, I'm going to barcelona next week working for a couple of days. Anybody been there recently? I remember a good one by the old cathedral, but that was a few years ago.

    there's a pretty decent one in "La Rambla". Expensive and touristy but sports an impressive selection of pipes and tobaccos specially for a Spanish tobacconist, since most of them really suck.
    Can't really say much more than this since I'm from Madrid, I live in Mallorca and I've only visited Barcelona a couple of times and didn't really go tobacconist-hunting...

    I second Kaboom and arno665. I was in BCN in June-July - dropped in at both locations and made some interesting finds. I was pleasantly surprised to find the prices of pipes to be pretty reasonable (especially given the favorable euro-to-dollar exhchange rate). Estanco offers a pretty extensive selection of tobaccos, along with cigars. A shame the Pipa Club has shut down (for the moment, anyway). Let us know about your trip! Safe travels.
