ConsYou may not be able to take some of it home

Situated just off Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s Boqueria (or more correctly Mercat de San Josep) market is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. I think it says a lot about the enduring attraction of food markets that the Boqueria is still so popular in spite of the fact that our...

Our plans for that day were not to visit la Boqueria, but having got off the metro at the wrong station, there it was, right in front of us, so we decided to have a quick look. We ended up spending most of the morning there, and even went back another day to buy a few things. This busy Barcelona...

ProVariety, Value, Central

ConsNone

A visit to Barcelona is not complete without a walk down La Ramblas, which runs from the centre at Placa de Catalunya to Port Vell. This long straight tree lined avenue is alive day and night. The pedestrian strip in the centre is lined on one side with stalls selling small birds, chickens...

ProVery "real"

ConsNone

The history of this place is the following. There was this noble who had promised he would help the King of Castilla to regain the city of Almeira, which had fallen in the hands of the arabs. It was not an easy task, but at the end Alemira was again under Castillan control, and, just as a...

Prolots of goodies to buy

Consit can get very crowded

I went to Barcelona for a long hen weekend and I thought it was a fantastic place to go for a short break. One of the best places to visit is Las Ramblas, a long road that goes from Plaza Catalunya to the Mediterranean Sea. There are a few monuments to visit while walking along this road, being...
