Alternative Barcelona is run by Phil & Angela Kurthausen.

We live in, and love Barcelona.  So much so, that we got married here and moved here with our cat, Moll, after visiting for many years. Phil is a best selling author (Harper Collins and Bloodhound Books) and his latest novel, ‘How to kill your friends’ is set in Barcelona and out in October 2019 (you can check out his other novels at  Angela is a lifestyle blogger ( and is passionate about the environment and sustainable living.

This beautiful, flawed, city is where we call home and we want to bring you some ideas of the best places to stay, eat and hang out.  We are still exploring the place ourselves so we are always open to any top tips! 

Here’s to Barcelona.

Salut i força al canut!
