Flea Market Shopping
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.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
