To help you make the most of your trip, here are some insider tips and things to see and do:

That’s where “Thai Chada” massage center comes in – the ultimate destination for aches and pains from your journey.
This hidden gem, located on Carrer de les Semoleres, 9 and easily accessible via the Metro L4 Yellow line (stop at Jaume 1), offers traditional Thai massages that will leave you feeling like a new person.
