Great place to be! Easy to find in the center of Horta de San Joan, or just ask and everyone will direct you with a smile. Lovely small eating place where the owners welcome you in several languages and spoil you with their tastefull pancakes and certified homemade Belgian Chocolate. Only a 2 houres drive from Barcelona, Horta de San Joan was a favorite staying place of Picasso and a must to visit when you travel through this part of Spain.

I had a great time in Horta de Sant Joan, a nice and authentic little village, 2 hours driving from Barcelona and famous for Picasso's stay. I explored the National Park 'Els Ports' by hiking. Going up and down 'the Roques de Benet' (1.000 metres high) takes you about 2h30. You can also start your hike at the center of Horta, then it takes about 4 to 5 hours to the top. On top you have a fabulous 360° view over the surroundings. Beautiful!
Walking through the gab 'Els Estrets' brings you to the blue lagoon. There you can have a swim in the incredibly clear water. We did the walk on a monday and there was nobody else than a goat. The beauty of the nature and the silence, just wonderful! The 'Via Verde' is the ancient railway from Aragon to Tortosa. Nowadays it is an ideal way to walk or bike across the unspoiled nature.
After having walked for many hours during the day I pampered myself with pancakes and chocolates in 'Xocolateria Arlequin'. It is a charming, little bar/restaurant in the center of Horta, near the main square, easily to find. It is specialized in home made pancakes, Brussels waffles and Belgian chocolates. The pancakes come in both sweet (with chocolate and ice cream) and salt (with smoked salmon, or with ham and cheese, etc).
The owners of the Xocolateria are very friendly and helpful. They speak several languages and they give very good information and advice about things you can do and where to go in the region. Just take time to have a cup of coffee or a tea with some delicious chocolates.
