The market is a must for visitors: Full of atmosphere and a magnificant display of local food. But we do suggest you avoid the Pinotxo Bar ( going through the main entrance, at the right side). Juan is the owner, and a legendary figure in...More

Who doesn't love a food market?? This one is fabulous and deserves some of your tour time in Barcelona. Wander through and pick up some samples for a great taste of local food. All under roof, so fine in any weather.

Just south from the main square of Barcelona (Catalunya Square) towards the sea is the lively market of Mercat de la Boqueria. We advise try one of the many Tapas bars for a light bite and cold drink. Please watch out for PICK POCKETS!

Second visit to Barcelona and this is one dining option that should not be missed. Extremely busy and pricey but worth the wait and cost. The seafood was fresh and well prepared, try the mussels cooked over a charcoal grill. Good cold draft beer and...More

Yes, it's a very nice & interesting market. BUT BEWARE!! It's also a THIEF'S den. With the huge crowds, this is a favorite hunting ground for the pickpocketers. One of our group members had her phone stolen inside the market. Just to warn travelers, don't...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
