Description

Sant Josep Market, better known as "La Boqueria", is in the heart of La Rambla Avenue. It is Barcelona's most famous and picturesque market. This emblematic spot in the city, in what was once the patio of Sant Josep Church, was inaugurated in 1836. Initially the market was open-air, with travelling sellers' and farmers' stalls, selling their goods directly to the public. It was eventually covered and made into an indoor market in 1914.

The exterior of La Boqueria is a metallic/glass structure. Nevertheless, it is the inside that is most interesting, making this market, famous for the quality and diversity of products on sale from all over the world, a place well worth visiting. The best way to feel its special atmosphere is to stroll around the stalls with fruit and vegetables, fish and meat, and pop into its bars and restaurants to enjoy the mixture of sounds, aromas and flavours.
