La Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, which is better known as La Bouqueria, is a very old Market in Barcelona. The first mention of it can be found as early as the 1400s. This market is extremely important to the culture of Barcelona.
Initially used only as a fish market, it now is a market place for a diverse selection of fresh produce. Today, a walk through this market will make you marvel at the number of fresh fruits, vegetables, grocery products, fresh fish and other sea-food and several other food products available under a single roof. There is also a huge variety of candied fruit to take back home on your vacation. Just the array of colours, textures and smells of the fruit are enough to attract just about everyone but you can get quite a good bargain too!
Gaze through the delectably fresh produce adorning the shelves at La Boqueria and gain the most of the market with the help of La Boqueria tickets that come with a local expert teaching you the basics of Spanish cuisine and guiding you to what to pick and what not to. Check the La Boqueria ticket prices from the tours listing and buy tickets for La Boqueria as getting tickets for La Boqueria is totally worth every penny.
