La boqueria is somewhere you have to go at least once in your life, but it's nothing special. The bars are really delicious but quite expensive. I really enjoyed walking and trying food al paso. My favorites were the "papa caliu" at rotiseria ramon (955-956) and the "pulpo a la gallega" from marisc nineta. Probably all the stalls have excellent... More

Fantastic fresh market place I wish we had an Airbnb so we could've bought a lot of food to cook. You can also get a drink and some food there at a little stall.

The market is really cool and definitely worth a stroll through. Try some of the food, it all smells and tastes delicious. If you're super into different meats, fresh seafood, veggies, fruits, olives, and spices then you may spend a lot more time here. But if you just want to see it, it takes no more than an hour to...

Make sure you have euros as alot of venders don't accept credit card . This lively market is quite good and has pretty much anything needed to stay alive or to spice up life. There is a vender who sells delicious small portions of cold cuts. A few bars and sushi venders as well.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
