The Market

The Market

Due to it being sited on the Rambla the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria is probably the most well known market in the city.

The market attracts not only tourists but the residents of Barcelona.

The market is both a dry and wet market, selling fresh vegetables, food supplies, fish and meat.

Originally constructed in 1853, the market is located just off La Rambla in a series of interconnected sheds.

La Rambla

La Rambla

La Rambla is one of the main touristic streets in Barcelona - it runs for about 1.2 km. It stretches from Plaša de Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus Monument.

The street is actually a series of shorter interconnecting streets - all with various Rambla names. Rambla de Canaletes, the Rambla dels Estudis, the Rambla de Sant Josep, the Rambla dels Caputxins, and the Rambla de Santa M˛nica

Strolling down the Rambla can be a fun thing, with its many street performers, small shops and of course coffee stops and restaurants.

During the main tourist season the Rambla can be fairly packed particularly in the evening time.

Plaša de Catalunya

Plaša de Catalunya

The centre of the city is considered to be the area around Plaša de Catalunya.

Many of Barcelona's main shopping streets lead onto the square. So a day of serious shopping can be had by traversing the square - though mind the pigeons as there seems to be hundreds of them strolling about the pavements at any time.

The fountain is a dominant feature of the square and is particularly popular in the summer when its spray wafting over the square can be cooling.
