La Boqueria Market, Barcelona

“There’s so much food here!”
The people of Barcelona know how to walk and how to eat!
I took my first walk along La Rambla, a great (in size and entertainment value) pedestrian walkway (is that redundant?) stretching from Plaça de Catalunya to the sea. La Rambla is packed with people on a Saturday afternoon. About midway, there stands the historic and eminent La Boqueria Market. Much as La Rambla is filled to overflowing with people of all sizes, shapes, and colors, La Boqueria Market is brimming with all magnitude of cured meats, fish, cheeses, eggs, and produce. There are also bar areas and sit-down eateries which are vibrant and look very appetizing!

Let me give you just a taste (pun intended!) of the sheer energy and color of this place!

    Love traveling with you! Did you eat at El Quim? Wanted to sit right down with you, sip on a beer, and eat mussels and eggs! Hope you go to Picasso Museum, Fundació Joan Miró, The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, everything Gaudi! Just for me!

    • Ginny, I did not see any of those! But I saw so much! I toured the Palau de la Musica de Catalan, spent an afternoon on Las Ramblas, had an incredible and long and lovely visit to La Sagrada Familia and had a great and educational adventure up at Parc Gway! I thought I’d do more Gaudi of course – and Picasso – but I took my time instead and soaked up the people and the culture. I plan to return though and explore more and more and more like you did! Can’t wait!
      Love, Renate

    • Yes, Darlene, they are using Euros and the prices don’t seem too outrageous. Some of the cured meats were more spendy, I noticed. Thanks so much for commenting and reading! Much love to you!
