If you ever decide to visit Barcelona, you need to make it a point to walk along La Rambla. La Rambla is definitely a tourist hot spot, but you will find many locals there as well. The street is 1.2 kilometers and lined with trees, shops and restaurants. The Gran Teatre del Liceu, Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Font de Canaletes, and the Palau de la Virreina can be found on La Rambla as well.
Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, or simply, La Boqueria can also be found along La Rambla. This market is known as the market in Barcelona, and it’s easy to see why. This market features every food imaginable from dairy, to meat, to seafood, to spices, to bread, to candy, to coffee, to chocolate, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures of the foods at La Boqueria. Though my pictures are able to capture the colors, you really need to visit so that you too can enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of La Boqueria in Barcelona!
Have you ever been to La Rambla or la Boqueria? What did you think?
