For sure it is a nice place to visit at least once. There are many and weird stuff. Probably the bad point would be the price that sometimes seems to be excessive but anyway you can go to walk and have a nice time.

The best market I've ever been to by far. The produce is fresh and looks fantastic. There are fish stalls selling best looking fish and seafood, live lobsters and other shellfish.

Visited in February with 2 young kids (6 & 9). Was crowded but nothing like peak tourist season. Amazing array of seafood, meats, chocolates, fruit and vegetables. Some we'd never even seen before. A great place to nose around in and my top tip -...More

Had enough of walking around the shops or historical sights, or just want to do something different? Then I strongly recommend a visit even just out of curiosity. This is what markets around the rest of Europe should strive to be like. Busy, exceptional quality...More

If you want a taste of Barcelona, this is the place. It does get packed keep your bags close. Try the cones of cured meats, olives, nuts and cheeses. The smoothies were great and if you want any kind of fruit or vegetable you will...More

Had a trip round the market this week, fantastic stalls selling a massive variety of produce, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables like you don't see back in the U.K. A must see experience for any visitor to Barcelona !!

The atmosphere is noisy because it's really crowded. But it's cool. You can taste everything : the best ham (pata negre), fresh fruits, etc. Careful, make sure you havecash on you.

Paid a visit to the market late on a Saturday afternoon. Very busy. Nice bars with tapas etc. Well worth a visit

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

We will be close by at around 7pm on a Friday evening in August. Is it worth calling in or will it be closing?

We were there late afternoon. Given the activity on the Rambla, I doubt the place would close before late evening.

Is the market wheelchair accessible? I know there will be crowds and may be difficult to see - but is the ground flat?
