Bastaix gives name to the "Bastaixos", those who were the main reason of Santa Maria del Mar church construction, with the help of the seaman and the neighbours of the area.
Bastaixos act for devotion, assuming the rough task of carrying all the necessary bricks from Montjuïc to this point (almost 4km). Their work of conveying the huge stones on their shoulders and, later on, cutting them in the correct shape by hand was a volunteer task.
"Amazing tapas!" We went to Bastaix to get some tapas and we didn’t get disappointed. There were the standard tapas but real good ones. We loved to make the tomato-bread ourselves. Ceviche was also delightful!
"Spectacular service” Unsurpassable service. The cocktails are perfect. I wish all bars would have such a great service as in Bastaix!
"Good food, good place" We ordered a cheese and cold cut assortment with some bravas and wine. Highly recommended for its quality and for being located in the historic district of Barcelona.
