La Boqueria is a large market, and (for each of the times we visited) very busy. There are numerous stalls set out within, each selling a variety of hams, cheeses, meat and seafood. My partner and I had been exploring the market and had begun...More

Major food market and main tourist stop. So prepare for mob scene and lines. After a 15-20 min wait we got a counter seat. This is essentially a Seafood grill. The items we ordered were fresh, fairly tasty, but expensive for the value and setting....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

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
