Soak up some Barcelona culture by diving into the atmosphere of Mercat de la Barceloneta, a huge draw for both impassioned foodies and architecture enthusiasts. The market occupies a modern building constructed of glass and steel and serves as a major landmark in one of Barcelona's most colorful neighborhoods. Inside is the usual setup of vegetable and meat stalls, as well as several sit-down eateries where you can rest and grab a warm meal. Although safe and friendly, the market gets extremely busy during lunchtime, so it's a good idea to leave your personal items at the hotel.

  • An interesting place to see some of the life of the local people. It is a modern market where local people stop to socialize by taking coffee or having lunch. Inside the market you will find a bit of everything: meat, seafood, vegetables, charcuterie bread, cheeses. I visited him out of curiosity before going to the sea. The market is located in the vicinity of the sea. The vendors of the various stands are kind and very helpful.

  • Currently I live in Barcelona for 3 moths in the Centro area. What a lovely experience. The freshness is at the hand reach. Boqueria Market is a legendary place to visit.  more »

  • This is the place to go for fresh fish and all types of local specialties. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars, is that it's not exactly cheap and that you need to get there rather early. However, if you go for the seafood that is in season, you can prepare great dishes that are at least as good as what you get in most restaurants for only a fraction of the price.
  • This is where the locals go for lunch. Always very good, especially the fish, always perfect and very pricy.
