Story behind the souvenir

Story behind the souvenir

The “panots” are closely tied to the urban development of Barcelona’s Eixample district. Previously, macadam stone was used as pavement in the city, but this caused problems when it rained, turning into a muddy surface. In 1903, the need arose to find a different type of pavement. The Barcelona City Council organized a public competition to choose the appropriate option. The “panots” were selected among the 5 available choices due to their low cost. From 1907 onwards, they began to be used in the city’s pavement.

 

The “panot de ensaimada,” named after its concentric shape resembling the Mallorcan pastry, is uncommon. In any case, it is important to note that they are no longer installed in the city’s pavement today.

 

With this Barcelona mug, we have paid tribute to the Barcelona “panot,” which has become a symbol of identity and pride for the people of Barcelona. Besides their aesthetic value, these tiles hold cultural and historical significance for the city. They are considered a distinctive element of Catalan modernism and are appreciated by both locals and visitors alike.

This is a beautifully designed mosaic mug with a clear symbolism of Barcelona’s panots. Panots are tiles used on the city sidewalks and are recognized for their iconic engraved designs, which are closely linked to the recent history of the city.

In addition to the famous flower design, these panots include, for example, concentric circles known as ensaimada, which we have selected for this Barcelona mug.

As for our mug, the high-quality ceramic construction ensures that your beverage stays hot, and the comfortable handle makes it easy to hold and enjoy. Additionally, the product’s high quality also guarantees that the mug is resistant and durable, so you can enjoy it for many years to come.

Our mug is sturdy and glossy, with a vibrant print that will withstand the microwave and dishwasher.
