The Travel Ahh…Going to the Market

La Boqueria Market in Barcelona, Spain. Visiting markets is a big part of absorbing culture. One of the oldest markets in Spain, La Boqueria, offers full on sensory details. I loved hearing the buzz of everyone talking, ordering, as well as the shuffling and unloading of goods. And, of course, the mix of smells from fish to bread to fresh produce is a trademark of any market. The colors, even the variations of the whites, grays and pinks of the seafood, feed your eyes, indeed. However, the best is the reward of buying something fresh like a warm churro and enjoying it while taking a stroll down La Rambla.

  1. Mary, I’m so glad! La Boqueria is definitely a must-visit. Barcelona is such a special place! It’s one of my favorite cities in the world. Be sure to keep a look out for the Gaudi designed buildings — all very unique and some even Dr. Seussish! Have a fabulous time — I’ll look forward to seeing your posts. 🙂 Steph
