Mercat Santa Caterina, Barcelona

(4.2/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Market under corrugated roofs and colorful, in the Centre of Barcelona. Various stalls of fruits and vegetables, fish and tapas. Also has a great restaurant Cuines Santa Caterina.

  • It is a market in a modern building, with several Spanish typical food kiosks and a few restaurants.

  • Friendly waiters, excellent food, and no doubt very good quality. The site is very cool, so on my next visit to Bcn, I will repeat.
