All Markets in Barcelona

The local markets are an unconventional way to visit a city dispossessed from the role of visit. You can immerse yourself in the habits and quirks of the citizens of that place, try the flavors, smells and gestures of an identity that is not yours. Certainly to admire the many works in museums, marvel at the magnificence of the architecture of centuries ago and remain in awe of some landscapes are experiences that enrich and will remain immortal in your mind. In a city like Barcelona governed by the essence of the contradiction each market makes the visitor feel a different soul of this city. Among the major markets to visit in Barcelona are:
