Summer will be officially in Barcelona in just a few days and… what does it mean? Of course hot. It is time to be near to the fan or the air conditioner. Probably you will even enter into the shops only to escape from the high temperatures.

If you are like me, then you are probably thinking in another meaning for this question. If you still do not know what I am talking about I can give you a hint. It is very cold and it has many different flavours… HELADO, ICE CREAM, GELATO, EIS, INGHETATA, EEN IJSJE, GLACE, GLASS, FLØDEIS, JÄÄTELÖ, ISKREM !

If you are passionate about this cold little friend, check here our suggestions to find the best places in Barcelona.

Mannà Gelats

Specialized on tropical and exotic fruits. If you are looking for a refreshing choice, this place is open the whole year. The owners are from Venezuela and they learned this art in Italy.
Passion fruit, Madagascar chocolate, guava, peanut butter, pistachio… probably you will want to come back when you try it.

Eyescream and Friends

If you are looking for something different, creative and definitely funny, this is your place. They serve sliced ice cream with eyes and toppings. It will deserve a picture before you can enjoy it. Try the Oreo and the cheesecake tastes!

Gelaaati di Marco

No artificial colors or flavours. This Sicilian ice cream shop competes for the first place in Barcelona.  The best part is the big amount of flavours they have.

Shanti Gelato

Argentinian ice cream can also be considered one of the most famous in the world. With the aim that the ice cream is an ‘obligatory dessert’,  they prepare fresh ice cream every day with the best ingredients. Besides, they have plenty of options as vegan, rice milk, non-lactose, gluten-free…

Red wine, mojito, kiwi or green apple are some or the amazing flavours you can experience here.
