The Markets of Barcelona

For a great start to our summer holiday this year, my family and I travelled to spend a few nights in the heart of Barcelona. Barcelona is a hugely varied, bustling city which has so much to explore. Just a couple of streets away from our apartment, was the huge street, La Rambla. On this was the indoor market: Mercat de La boqueria. Its a fabulous, thriving market, and here are some of the photos I took when we visited..enjoy!

Looks like a lovely trip. You live in my favorite city in the world. I love London. I think it's great that you are cooking and blogging in your teen years. Looking forward to reading more of your entries.

whoa!! look at all the colourful candies!!!
What an amazing place, looks like a foodies dream!
Their fruit displays are fantastic... and a little scary. It would be me, where I took a fruit and the rest come falling!

You have captured the Barcelona markets beautifully Lucy! I love the pics of the lollies on the stall, all spread out like that, they look fantastic! I wonder how they manage to keep little fingers away... :)
