Who’s Empara Rosselló?
Intermedia artist, dance, theatre, singing and image, as well as acting. Empara studied Philology and History at the University of Barcelona, and Psychology at the Open University of Catalonia. She got the FAD Award 2004 and was fully dedicated to research in performance, in both fields, pedagogical and creative. Her background embraces from the classical and contemporary dance to Zen.
She has made research in comparative religion. Specially relevant is the time spent with Tibetan lamas or living as a hermit in the mountains of Montserrat together with Father Basili, honourable Benedictine monk. During her stay in New York, she kept a close relationship with members of the American avant-garde “Fluxus”, as Philip Corner and Alison Knowles, and other artists like Nancy Zendora or Meredith Moonk.
She has developed her own method of work, the MER system, which uses the body as a laboratory for developing global awareness (art and health). She creates her own performances, working in Europe, Africa and USA.
We could define her work as Catalan post-surrealism. She has collaborated, among others, with Mintanaka, Carles Santos, Albert Vidal, Xavier Albertí, Cesc Gelabert, Richard Martin, José María Nunes.

Empara was a nice host and met us on time. Although it has been noted by other reviewers we were not asked to supply a cash deposit. When our plans changed at the last minute and we had to check out a little early, Empara was quick to arrange a new time.
The place is a bit of an odd layout as it is actually a store front. However the fact it is on ground floor and has two bathrooms was a plus. The beds are all fold out lounges and are of mixed quality. They are also placed in both of the two rooms. Bigger groups would find it hard to get any private space. We didn't use the kitchen at all so can't really comment on it.
The location is very good. Only a five min walk to the rambla. There is also a couple of tube stops within about the same distance. Food on the rambla Raval is a little mixed. Mostly kebabs and crappy pizza Better to go to the gothic area or a little away from the Raval strip.
I would recommend this to people who's prime concern is a non smoking room in good location at a budget. Less so if you want up to date modern fixtures or places to hang out like a balcony or courtyard.
I've been in this loft with 6 friends for a week and I can tell that our experience was disgusting: when the "sofabeds" are open you can barely move in the apartment and the kitchen can't even be called so as the cookers did'nt work properly and we had to use a boiler to cook,we therefore had to wait 1 hour to cook. We also found beetles in kitchen so on the second day we decided to eat in restaurants for the rest of the week!
The apartment was very confortable for 6 people! The 2 bathrooms were a plus!
Besides the apartment is in a strategic place, near the centre!
No problem with Empara, she answered all my questions and she was very friendly to me!
I'd rather recommend the flat to people who just wanna sleep somewhere, and do the business in the city and would like to save money. Because it's very cheap and for the price it's excellent - you have also internet connection, and kitchen as well. The entrance was a bit suprising, because its a roll-top metal blind or something - like a closed shop window. The flat is in the centre, maybe not in the brightest side of the city, we rather stayed in small groups on the streets, but there weren't any issues. The owner lady was nice and helpful.
Une semaine à Barcelone en logeant dans le Raval permet d’accéder facilement à tous les quartiers historiques ou commerciaux et d'apprécier la qualité de vie des habitants et du passage (website hidden) pas manquer les marchés, le parcours Gaudi au moins en façades car les visites intérieures sont très onéreuses ( 20€), les bars comme le Marsella pour l'absinthe, les magasins design, le musée Picasso et Miro, le Macba, moins bien la fondation Tapiès car peu d'oeuvres . Il faut revenir 3 ou 4 fois pour tout voir. remarquable ville joyeuse, accueillante et trés active malgré la crise peu perceptible ici .
Excelente trato de Ampara, el departamento muy bien. La estancia estuvo muy bien los 7 días que contrate y el lugar esta bastante cerca de la Rambla y del Barrio Gótico que es la zona más visitada en Barcelona
Non capisco come sia possibile far dormire le persone in simili condizioni: il loft e' in realtà un negozio con tanto di serranda, non esistono finestre, i letti sono in realtà delle piccole poltroncine allungabili con un materassino a terra. La proprietaria non si è fatta mai vedere, ha voluto 40 euro perché siamo arrivate dopo le 9 e prima di andare via ci ha chiesto di pulire e buttare la (email hidden)r cui dubito che qualcun altro pulisca prima di nuovi ospiti. Tutto e' vecchio e rovinato, non c'è il phon, alla cucina non ci siamo proprio avvicinate. La stella e' solo per la posizione: comoda,centrale e caratteristica.
I don't suggest this apartment to anyone: the loft is actually a shop,
terrible beds and conditions, no windows, no clean. Just the position is good.
Absolument rien a voir avec ce qui est annoncé:Beautiful loft city...c'est plutôt : local commercial pouvant acceuillir 8 personnes à dormir comme des saisonniers couchant dans 2 pièces et non 2 chambres;en plus il faudrait oser donner 250 euros en espèce à une femme sortie dont on ne sait où sans reçu ;payer 40 euros de plus si on arrive après 21h alors que c'est stipulé minuit sur le site...ceci étant dit le photographe est très doué.A (email hidden) bien....Airbnb ferait bien de vérifier la bonne tenue des annonces;car pour une première expérience avec eux ce sera à preuve du contraire la dernière.
Si tratta fondamentalmente di un negozio su strada sicuramente situato in una delle peggiori zone di Barcellona...per accedervi bisogna tirare su la saracinesca murarsi dentro una volta entrati per mancanza di finestre...
Sfortuna vuole che il periodo in cui siam stati era freddo e la presenza di un solo piccolo e inutile spara calore per stanza non soddisfa minimamente le necessità di riscaldare
L'ambiente risulta sporco con delle sistemazioni per dormire realmente disonorevoli...mi chiedo come possano permettere di far soggiornare delle persone in tali condizioni
Cordiali saluti Alessandro
Siempre que vayamos a Barcelona, Empara será nuestra primera opción. El barrio en el que está situado es muy bonito y pintoresco. Está en el centro de todo y siempre vamos caminando a todas partes. Además el trato con Empara es encantador. 100% recomendable.
