Imagine a market with fresh fruit, seafood, fresh juices, tapas... Barcelona style! It can feel overwhelming with the amount of people everywhere, so try to choose a time when it's less crowded (if possible!).

There's lots to eat. Not all of it good. Fresh fruit cups, tapas bars, cured meats stands, sandwich stands, but there's also butcher shops n fish markets. Prices are reasonable. I heard so much about this " must go" market. But it was crowed, I...More

The mercat was the highlight of my trip, I loved wandering the stalls sampling the offerings. Everything was beautiful, the merchants entertaining, the food spectacular. Mediterranean produce is the best and the best of it is offered here.

This is the market. THE market to visit in Barcelona. With sights, sounds and smells throughout the market, Boqueria is a perfect place for lunch, but you don't need to eat here if nothing takes your fancy (unlikely!) It is worth a look around in...More

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

Early in the morning for sure. Many tourists are there after breakfast or during the day. Early in the morning is quiet and peacefully. Watch your staff, leave your passports in hotel, bring your money only for daily costs... More

We were there late afternoon. Given the activity on the Rambla, I doubt the place would close before late evening.
