An small and cute perfumery store placed in the Raval that I discovered some weeks ago. The space design is a mix of traditional materials and a contemporary sense of the space and is full of numerous things that smell crazy. I bought one cake of soap from a portugese label called Claus Porto. Now my bathroom smells like a country of savage water lilies and I'm looking forward to wash my hands all the time.
Laut is avant-garde culture from the heart of Barcelona. Very close to the Paral.lel street, old cradle of Barcelona's bohemia, you will find a space of two hundred and forty-five square meters designed for a reduced audience and equipped with a high-quality sound system.
Salvador Dalí often visited Cadaqués in his childhood, and later kept a home in Port Lligat, a small village on a bay next to the town. A summer holiday here in 1916, spent with the family of Ramon Pichot is seen as especially important to Dalí's artistic career. Other notable artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Hamilton, Albert Ràfols-Casamada, Antoni Pitxot, Henri-François Rey, Melina Mercouri and Maurice Boitel also spent time here. Cadaqués is mentioned in the story "Tramontana" by Gabriel García Márquez.
