Do not miss a trip around this amazing market. Even the fish look colourful. Who would ever think such a thing. You could eat all the way round from savoury to sweet. The tapas bars are amazing. The Harmon stalls are incredible you can get little tasters. Go do it.

An almost overwhelming collection of sights, sounds and smells attack your senses when you first enter La Boqueria. It is soon apparent that this comes from the passion that the stall holders have in their produce. In particular, the fruit and vegetable are sculpted works of art in there own right. There is something for everyone here and a visit... More

A fabulous place to stimulate every sense. Everything is displayed in a characteristically Barcelona way - with colour and flare! Plenty of opportunity to try tapas as you stroll around.

It is a very interesting and a must-see attraction /market in Barcelona, including exotic fruit and juices, varied types of meat and salami, jamon, and tapas places as well as markets to shop from. Most interesting part for us was a small tapas place where there was a proper show of chefs! We went there for breakfast and it was... More

Absolutely amazing experience! I only wish more of the stalls let you sample their goodies! Usually at the entrance of the market the prices were higher. Avoid the burritos- cheap and tasteless. The good chocolates are of fair quality, but cost 68-72€ per kg! So be aware. Fresh fruits and smoothies are worth a sample

If you like wandering around nice markets, this is a place you should visit while staying in Barcelona. We are foodies and market lovers :) and we really enjoyed our walk there. The market is impressive with its abundance of everything - all kinds of seafood, fruits, meat, spices, cheese, etc. There are food places where you can find the... More

We spent a wonderful few hours wondering around the market, sampling food aty every step. The quality of the food was immense, we stood at one market stall and sampled oysters and sea urchins like locals as the old ladies jabbered around us haggling over the price of the fresh produce that surrounded us.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood 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.
