Santa Caterina Market

This was Barcelona’s first covered market built-in 1845 that has been at the centre of commerce in Catalonia. Although now a bustling bazaar where people come to shop, during the post-Civil War period, it was the main source of food supplies to the towns on the outskirts of Barcelona. When there were shortages, people from Sant Adrià, Santa Coloma and Mataró came on the tram to buy food from here. Since then it has undergone renovation, with its most iconic feature being its funky and colourful roof. Like the roof, the inside is also a wide sea of colours, with the huge variety of produce on the stalls creating this effect. Worth coming down, even if it is to browse the aisles in search of something special.
