Other Barcelona sightseen you can’t miss
Spain’s vast culture is driven by its unique markets. From San Miguel and San Anton in Madrid to La Boqueria in Barcelona, a surprising variety of unique souvenirs, fashion, and collectibles can be found and purchased in these remarkable places. Also, they serve as touristic destinations of gastronomic delicatessen to spoil your refined taste.
Let’s have a quick glimpse of their history, but this time we’ll focus on the city of Barcelona. The first market was built in what is now known as Portal del Angel, see below where is located:
Small shops and market stands were growing and expanding to other areas of the city in strategic points. This expansion was crucial to the city’s economic growth.
Over time, these markets continued evolving to the ones we enjoy today! The unique architectural concept has also changed, from ancient open areas to big closed spaces with modern buildings and facilities. This evolution served as a model for other countries, setting Barcelona as a shining example for businesses across the globe.
Here, I’ve listed a few names so you can find them easily:
Mercat del Ninot
Mercat de la Concepcion
Mercat de Sant Antoni
Mercat de Sagrada Familia
Mercat de la Boqueria
This last one doesn’t have food like a supermarket, but it does have restaurants and a variety of artifacts from antiques to a fleamarket stuff.
I hope you find a nice market during your visit! Enjoy the unique, local touch of its products along the way.
See you in my next post!
