Travel To Barcelona, Spain? Help With Gluten-Free Labeling

And does anyone have recommendations for gluten-free restaurants/shops in Barcelona?

I imagine there are lots of gluten-free products in shops such as DM. Look for Schar brand. Their ciabatta rolls and crispy bread sticks are my favourites. These products are what I buy when in Europe (though I detest their breads many other things are tasty with good texture).
ETA: You are in luck. Looks as though there are many places you can purchase Schar products in Spain...
Don't forget to take along plenty of snacks for airports, flights and plan for delays - they seem inevitable.
Confirmed celiac disease February 2011 from biopsies (had both gastroscopy and colonoscopy). Strictly gluten free March 18 2011.

3 herniated discs, myofascial pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, 2 rotator cuff injuries - from an accident Dec. 07 - resulting in chronic pain ever since. Degenerative disc disease.
Osteoarthritis in back and hips.
Chronic insomnia mostly due to chronic pain.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

The biggest gluten-free selection is at health food stores. They often have the name "ecologic" or some variant of that in their name. The one closest to us has, what my son refers to as "The wall of Schar". It's great. They also have frozen gluten-free pizzas and cakes.
We haven't ventured out to many restaurants yet, because we're taking it one step at a time. But so far they seem to be much more celiac aware than where we live in the states. One of the schools we are looking at for my son actually offers gluten-free menus in their cafeteria.
