Located on la Rambla of the city between the Liceu and the Boqueria market, Escribà pastry shop is a small and cozy place that is always crowded. The building draws the attention of everyone who is passing by. It is an old pasta factory, the former Casa Figueras, decorated in 1902 by the painter and the designer Antoni Ros i Güell. The corner that occupies the house is decorated with a great sculptural relief that represents a woman who mowing, a tribute to the work that was done before at the factory. The façade of this pastry shop in Barcelona is modernist, with the centerpiece arches and the windows full of polychrome mosaics, stained glass and wrought iron. The Escribà pastry shop, as well as being one of the best places to eat in Barcelona, is also a tourist attraction to contemplate it from the outside. In 1906 the building became a pastry shop when Mateu Serra i Capell opened the Forn Serra, beginning with the tradition of this pastry shop in Barcelona. At that time, he contracted a pastry chef, Antoni Escribà Cases, and with him began the generation of Escribà pastry chefs, which has come to this day with internationally renowned chef Christian Escribà at the head of the fourth generation of the family.
