Santa Caterina Market, is the oldest covered food market in Barcelona, it was built in1865 on the site of the Convent of Santa Caterina.

It was remodeled in 2005, by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue, into a modern structure  with a mosaic tile  undulated roof.

We like the Santa Caterina Market as it is much less touristic then the Boqueria.  Here you actually see locals byung groceries – as supposed to the Boqueria’s packs of bus tourists!

The wares are pure Cataluña, with fresh seafood in all its forms dominating the scene. If you are lucky enough to have a kitchen in Barcelona, The Santa Caterina food market is a great place to stock up!
