General info: 

The Old Escuelas Pias building in the bohemian Lavapiés neighbourhood has plenty to boast about: probably the citys most beautiful library and an adorable top floor terrace, Gau & Cafe. The aerial hideaway attracts food lovers with its delicious but affordable Mediterranean and Arabic-style dishes. When the terrace first started ten years ago, its fame grew by word of mouth. Today it is the much loved crowning jewel of Lavapiés.

Getting there: 

The restaurant is 2 blocks from the Lavapiés metro station on line 3.

Interesting places nearby

An idyllic bay situated between Cala Mesquida Beach and Cala Mitjana on the north east coast of Mallorca.

This twin beach is among the 2 best beaches in Menorca, together with the Cala Mitjana. Cala Macarella & Macarelleta are the subject of around 50% of the postcards sold in Menorca.

Cala Mitjana is one of the most beautiful beaches in Menorca and in our opinion rivals with Cala Macarella&Macarelleta for the beast beach of Menorca title.

Cala en Turqueta is a ridiculously beautiful Menorcan white sandy beach in a picturesque setting. The right side of the beach is dominated by limestone rock but not in as dramatic way as for example in Cala Macarella&Macarelleta.

Cales Coves is an interesting option for those seeking to get away from the crowds. The “beaches “ are not very spectacular and basically not suitable for sunbathing and relaxing in the way we know it.

Cala des Talaier is a picturesque small beach in a small bay with calm waters. The turquoise crystal clear water makes you forget that you are not in paradise but close to civilization in Spain.
