Fol­low crea­ti­ve Ana­bel Luna through her favo­ri­te pla­ces in Barcelona

We asked our artist of the month to talk us through her favorite spots in the city, and neubau eyewear accompanied her on this little tour.

Bar­ce­lo­na based crea­ti­ve Ana­bel Luna would fit the pho­to­gra­pher label, but it would cer­tain­ly fall short. She main­ly works as a fashion pho­to­gra­pher, but she keeps her mind and time busy with many other crea­ti­ve endea­vours; art direc­tion, inte­rior design, acting, giving work­shops… She’s lived and deve­lo­ped her style in cities like Lon­don and Ber­lin, worked with gre­at desi­gners and brands, and for a few years alrea­dy she finds herself sett­led back in sun­ny Bar­ce­lo­na. We asked her to talk us through her favo­ri­te spots in the city, and neu­bau eye­we­ar accom­pa­nied her on this litt­le tour. From muse­ums and hot­spots to her lovely and drea­my home, you can now see it cap­tu­red through her lens in her deli­ca­te and tas­te­ful way. 


The Muse­um of Con­tem­pora­ry Art of Bar­ce­lo­na is dedi­ca­ted to the works made during the second half of the 20th cen­tu­ry. Two years ago I lives in the Raval neigh­bor­hood, one minu­te away from the muse­um; the archi­tec­tu­re, the peop­le, the squa­re, the exhi­bi­ti­ons… It was pure magic to have it all so clo­se to your home. It’s not only just a muse­um: the ent­ran­ce pla­za is a mee­ting point, a pho­to loca­ti­on, an out­door con­cert hall, even a natu­ral sola­ri­um! You can meet friends here, buy a beer, and watch the peop­le who walk by. You can enjoy the sun of Bar­ce­lo­na, and of cour­se the exhibitions!


May I invi­te you to know my stu­dio-home. Right at the begin­ning of the Poblenou neigh­bor­hood, we bought awareh­ouse and did a com­ple­te reno­va­ti­on. All made of natu­ral pine wood, inspi­red by the ama­zing Scan­di­na­vi­an style, crea­ting not only a work space, but a pho­to­gra­phy stu­dio, and a sound stu­dio for Ger­ard. It beca­me our house.We lived with Lewis (our cat), and we spent a lot of time in this 200 m² wareh­ouse that we call home now. Loft­nou is more than our stu­dio-home, it’s for many peop­le; we rent out the loft for shoo­tings, adver­ti­sing, fashion, events, work­shops and ever­ything needed!


In Febru­a­ry 2017 we tra­v­eled to Mexi­co for one mon­th, and we fell in love with the cul­tu­re, the peop­le, but abo­ve all with the food! Pikio Taco just ope­ned in the neigh­bor­hood of Gra­cia – a deli­cious taque­ría, real­ly Mexi­can! They ser­ve the best michela­da in Bar­ce­lo­na, the tas­tiest nachos in the who­le area and the tacos … deli­cious! The place is super nice, and has a neon sign that says: Me impor­ta un taco”. Love it! Well done guys!


The park is loca­ted in the neigh­bor­hood of Ciutat Vel­la, very clo­se to the beach and the Arc de Triomf. It’s a giant park whe­re so many things hap­pen all the time! It’s main­ly events that revi­ve natu­re, Cata­lan cul­tu­re and the com­mu­ni­ty. At the same time howe­ver, during the week, it is a natu­ral space whe­re you can go for awalk, do sports, read, relax, or have a pic­nic. It real­ly feels like you were not in the midd­le of the city. Watching the sun­set lie on the grass is a very good way to end a long day.


Nuo­vum is an object store of inde­pen­dent desi­gners, both local and from the rest of the world. Jose foun­ded Nuo­vum in 2013 and has an exqui­si­te tas­te in the selec­tion of pro­ducts. In the district of Born and also in the Raval, you will find the Nuo­vum shops, whe­re you’ll find glas­ses, bags, jewel­ry, inte­rior decor, and much more! Even if you don’t know what you’re loo­king for, Jose will be inte­res­ted in your tas­te, your style and what you are loo­king for. It’s like a machi­ne of good taste!
