The mercat de La boqueria is famous, but can be busy. This market on the other hand felt like a place where locals go to get groceries. If you need to pick up some items for a stay and avoid the crowds, I would go...More
Well just dive into this wonderful and colorful market. I was not cooking during my visit, but the vendors didn’t mind my interest without buying anything! Long discussions about how to cook goats head, what’s different about duck eggs, where does this and that grow?...More
A great free stop off with something for anyone who eats. The range and freshness of the produce puts the U.K. shelves to shame! Don’t forget to pick up a sample cone of ham, cheese or sausage for €1 - €3 👍🏻

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
ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
