Valentine’s cupid has yet to shoot her arrows in Spain as Valentine’s Day is barely celebrated here. However, if you are from the States, and live in Spain,  a big red heart should be drawn on your calendar for February 14.   Take it from me, women LOVE to be remembered on Valentine’s Day. So, if you’re a man and want to earn points with your love, in Barcelona style, head to the Chocolate Museum can help you stay at the top of the list.

The Chocolate Museum, Barcelona

Chocolates and Valentine’s Day go heart in hand.   Walking into this Museum is love at first sniff and a unique place to surprise your sweetie.  Start your day at the Café, also Barcelona style, with some freshly brewed, dark, hot chocolate and a chocolate covered pastry.

 

This small, unique Museum portrays the history of chocolate complete with sculptures such as a huge chocolate carriage with horses.  You can watch pastry makers at work in the Barcelona Patisseria School across the courtyard.  The friendly staff in the café/store will give you advice on which chocolate goes best with champagne.  Of course, candy is available from chocolate covered almonds that look like rocks to lollypops with burros.  Or make up a gift basket stocked with chocolate and orange marmalade and chocolate wine.  Chocolate wine?  Hey, this is Spain.  Cupid is sure to come your way!
