My recent visit to Barcelona was actually a stopover on my way back from Andalucia to Sardinia so, to avoid wasting completely the occasion by catching a flight on the same day, I decided to sleep two nights in the Catalan capital and visit the city at least for a whole day.
As my flight from Granada arrived early afternoon, I had at least part of the evening of the first day to enjoy my neighborhood which, how convenient, was located at La Rambla, possibly the most colored street of the city, excluding of course Gaudi’s creations.
Who’s been following this site might have already understood I’m developing an unhealthy fixation on local markets: from a roundup post on open markets around the world, to Middle Eastern Tehran’s enticing shops, to Southeast Asian Qingdao peculiar street food.
This post will be devoted to yet another local market, La Boqueria, whose colorful stands sit on La Rambla, at about 10 minutes walk from central Plaça Catalunya and just in front of my hotel. Enjoy the ride!
