La Boqueria, first documents confirming the presence of meat stalls on Pla de la Boqueria brings us back to the year 1217 as part of a series of street markets located on the Rambla. Today it is one of Barcelona´s most famous indoor markets. A must visit if you are exploring the City center. It used to be the market for the locals but the last few years it has changed more towards the tourists. It is still one of the classics to visit. It is a play of colors and smells inside. Also know for the little cozy hidden tapas places. One of the best and oldest is the Pinotxo bar.
La Boqueria market near the Ramblas.
The market has many different stands like fish , meat , fruits, sweets etc…. The many color´s and different shapes are sometimes difficult to resist. A little advice is that the locals at the market do not really appreciate the people walking around just to take pictures as after all they are there to make a living. If you can do them a favor by buying something they will be thankful.
