This is a lovely market, perfectly suitable for a 15-minute stroll, just to absorb the atmosphere, even if you're not looking to buy anything.

As some people already know, I go there with my loved wife every Sunday to lunch. At this time we know every one of the waiters, the guys from the bar, etc. They are all gentle guys (and girls) that make all they can to...More

This is a beautiful market in the historic center of Barcelona. Less crowded than La Boqueria, and with some good places to have a very good meal. The building is amazing, designed by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue.

Really fun to go into the market as there are lots of great places to eat fresh seafood and of course tapas. I keep reading about pick pockets, but to be honest, just be smart. Don't wear a backpack with easy access to zippers. You...More

This market tries to imitate its bigger and more popular market on the Ramblas. It is quiet and very clean, but lacks the authenticity of a "real" fruit and vegetables market - a bit "plastic"

This market is relatively new, but nice and not as touristic as some others. The restaurant on the corner has great food!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

5 minutes walk. You will see the colourful roof of the market in distance from the square in front of the catedral.
