However, the museum showed us that, in fact, chocolate is not so simple. The complicated process of chocolate production is what made it a royal delicacy when it was first introduced in Europe (through Barcelona!) The museum included a fairly small exhibit explaining the history and making of chocolate, as well as some impressive
chocolate sculptures. My favorite part was eating my ticket - it was a delicious bar of dark chocolate!
The sun was beginning to peek through as we left the museum, so we had a dry afternoon to wander the Gothic quarter. Before heading back to the apartment, we stopped for chocolate con churros - just couldn't get chocolate my mind after our museum visit!
Next stop in a tapas dinner in the Gracia neighborhood - said to be a trendy area for the locals.
