Create an itinerary including La Boqueria
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. Make La Boqueria part of your personalized Barcelona itinerary using our Barcelona trip maker app.

  • This vibrant market will make you feel like a local in Barcelona. I’d skip the eateries here, because none of them are any good. But the produce is fabulous and a great place to shop if you plan on...

  • What a feast for the senses! Enormous variety of gourmet items. I have never seen such a rainbow of juices! Chocolate, candies, nuts, caramelized goodies... I really enjoyed just walking through and seeing the rich array of high quality products. Of course, tasting was delightful too
  • Beautiful colorful market where you can take in so many flavors. Lots to see with tons of people enjoying themselves. Went and had a great time with the girls and we left satisfied. Plenty to take with you when you head out. Great fruit and vegetables and tons of meats. Thank you for a great experience and see you again soon. It is definitely worth the trip
