Animated and colorful like a Neapolitan market, ordered like a Swiss one, with the choice of products worthy of a shopping center.
It is the Boqueria, the largest market in Barcelona and Spain, located at number 91 of the Rambla. A large iron building accommodates kiosks of all kinds: vegetables, fish, desserts, meat, ruled by women in traditional costumes. A colorful mosaic of things to see, taste, and buy.
The beauty of the kiosks (many with columns) and the perfectly maintained layout of the products on sale are astonishing. Watch out for pickpockets, lurking in every corner.
If you rent an apartment and want to buy something to cook, go to Boqueria in the early morning and keep an eye on the Barcelonians, who know what and where to buy. If you are looking for something to eat while wandering through Barcelona, choose the dried fruit or fresh smoothies counter.
