Barcelona's Boqueria Market

Dating to the 1200's, Barcelona's Mercat de la Boqueria is another fine, old market for foodies and digital camera buffs. Off of the city's most famous Avenida, La Rambla, La Boqueria is filled with the best looking produce, seafood, dairy, poultry and meat you can imagine. There are even a few bars and food stalls inside for those who want to linger. And you'll want to linger. The place is eye-candy for foodies. In a city that worships the bizarre and unusual architecture of Gaudi and boasts of the ultra-modern co-existing with the historic, La Boqueria is an anchor in the real world. A place where the fruits of the earth and sea trump the edifices of man. Check it out.
