IN Barcelona, gone are the days where Spanish waitors would look at you blankly if you declare yourself vegetarian.
Officially declaring itself a ‘veggie-friendly’ city, the Catalan capital is swapping jamon for fruit and veg.
With the release of a vegetarian guide, the town hall is asking residents to stop eating meat at least one day a week.
Barcelona Town Hall is set to promote vegetarianism by creating a new space for vegetarian and vegan businesses to meet.
Meat Free Mondays will also be promoted.
The proposal was passed by the left-wing coalition while the PP and Ciudadanos abstained.
The news comes as Slowly Veggie magazine is introduced on the shelves of Spanish newsagents.
