This Saturday, in a not entirely legal cultural centre (viz. bar) in a particularly seedy corner of El Raval, a harem of hot hymnists will gather for your literary pleasure. Barcelona's Prostibulo Poetico or 'Poetry Brothel' is an irregular gathering of exotic characters who, if the price is right (and they are surprisingly cheap), will read their patrons naughty verses from their private collection, dressed up with simmering stares and plenty of pouting. A bargain at 4 euros entry.
