La Gelateria Palau is an ice-cream shop located in the heart of Barcelona, in one of the most emblematic places of our city: right in front of the Palau de la Música Catalana, in ‘El Born’, district of Ciutat Vella.
It may seem that the name of the ice-cream shop was given because it is located there, however, the curious history goes back over a hundred years ago, when the businessman Ramon Palau decided to found a company that produces olive oil in the best region for such a task: The little village of La Sénia, in south Catalonia. In the olive fields bordering Castellón grew and consolidated the business of exporting olive oil that would later win several international awards for its supreme quality.
The descendants of Ramon founded this ice-cream parlor with all possible affection and with the help of the entire Lázaro-Palau family, from the oldest to the youngest, paying homage to their surname and taking advantage of the opportunity to open an ice cream store in Barcelona, decided that their ice cream would also have that superior quality that characterized the good work of the grandfather, Ramon.
Aware that the best ice cream culture is found in the region of Italy, they have partnered with the great supplier Luca Grassi (Luca Desserts) who won numerous awards and titles for preserving and innovating in the art of quality ice cream, in this way brings a great variety of the most artisan Italian ice creams in order to offer to the inhabitants of the city of Barcelona and its thousands of visitors the best dessert possible.
Like any good company, its beginnings were not easy, as we explained in our story, but from the first minute until today we worked to offer a new concept of ice cream in which to “take care of the taste and also take care of the body”, with healthy products like the famous poles of the refrigerator Nadia Ionut (GÜD), besides other delicious products like Waffles or Crêpes warm in winter or Horchata from Valencia in summer, this new concept is already positioning it like one of the best ice cream shops in Barcelona.
