We stopped in Barcelona after our cruise and stayed a few days. Our hotel was centrally located in The Ramblas and we of course stopped at the much talked about Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria. It was crazy, but in a great way. The amount of food options is overwhelming. You can pick from fresh meats to fresh... More

All I can say is that this place is awesome! there is so much to see and eat that its like a kid lost in a candy store. The stuff we tasted was really good and the flavors.. omg delicious. Just watch your pockets. Its crowded and a place for folks to try to nab your cash.

We may have walked right past this beautiful market, but the skies opened and we dashed in to find shelter. We walked in and after a short distance we both stopped, our jaws dropped and we looked at each other, wow.....said low and with respect..... This is something that has to be seen to be believed.... The way they present... More

The food is great here. Lots of fresh fish, meats, bread and produce. The Fresh made fruit drinks are delicious and a lot cheaper than in the restaurants and cafes. If you want to take home some local favorites like the Serrano ham better known as Iberico ham shop owners will package them for you for transporting.

This is a definite must see. An open market where people sell their goods, mainly focused on foods. Also has great little restaurants throughout the market. The area is exciting. Be sure to watch your time...the first day we went it was closed by the time we got there (by 8pm) But no one had mentioned there were certain hours.... More

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.
