The Fortino bakery is a family business located in Gràcia, one of Barcelona’s liveliest districts. More than twenty years ago we started to specialize in breads and pastries made with whole-grain flours, and now we are a reference in Barcelona in the field of healthy eating.
We proudly serve daily a huge variety of whole grain bread and pastries with touches of creativity and thoughtfulness. Every item is handmade with the utmost care by the the six bakers that bake all the products you’ll find in our store at Travessera de Gràcia street. Thanks to our extensive training in nutrition and baking techniques, our team prepares recipes that you won’t find in any other bakery.
Our long tradition making the best bread allows us to provide a wide variety of breads, pastries and cookies, from the typical Catalan rustic loaf to more innovative and artisan-inspired breads and pastries specially designed for people who are passionate about healthy food.
