We talk about the xuixo, the most well-known gironinian sweet. It’s a fried pastry butter bun filled with cream. And we reveal the legend of the Tarlà, which has a lot to do with the origin of the xuixo.

And we taste the xuixo of course!

The  visit continues to the Cathedral square and the Jewish quarter.  We walk along the Rambla and we cross the Eiffel’s bridge.
