Go shopping at this vibrant food market. Mercat Santa Caterina has been in operation since 1848 and is still very popular today. You can immediately recognize the market by its iconic bright wavy roof. Mingle with locals doing their weekly shopping and pick up some fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, and meat. Some Spanish olive oil makes a great souvenir. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stop for a bite to eat at one of the tapas restaurants that open onto the market.

  • The market is held in an architecturally striking Hall. It should be noted therefore not only the market stalls, but also the construction of the Hall from outside and inside. This market is not very large, but still quite for it originally, because not so many tourists make the pilgrimage here. The small market restaurant is recommended for a meal or just a drink. Please note that at times, where the Spaniards their lunch take a (i.e. from 13: 30-15:00) queues form. Therefore rather early at 1200 hours stop by!
