Vegans differ from vegetarian in rejecting not only meat nor fish but any food of animal origin, such as milk, honey, eggs or conventional cheeses. But above all, veganism it´s a lifestyle based on respect for animals, which involves using natural cosmetics and avoiding wool, silk or leather, for example.
Since 2016 Barcelona is ‘Veg-Friendly’, meaning a city that is friendly to vegetarian and vegan culture. The proposal was approved by the majority of political groups of the city council, which wanted to position the city as a reference in pro-vegan activism and against animal suffering. In this way, they continued with the crusade initiated by the laws against animal mistreatment and the prohibition of bullfights in Catalonia.
To show its support for the vegan cause, Barcelona has joined an international campaign called “Meat Free Monday” so that the city administration consumes vegetarian menus on Mondays. That´s why Barcelona is the ideal destination for all those who are betting on a vegan diet model.
In Barcelona, you can find all kinds of businesses, restaurants and vegan businesses that are respectful concerning the environment and with the animals rights. Do you want to know some of them?
