Mercat Santa Caterina (Market Holy Catherine) is the latest market built in Barcelona. Totally renovated in 2005 with brilliance by the architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT, is a little marvel located in the district of Ribera in Ciutat Vella. Beautiful architectural idea for this multicoloured ceramics roof having the shape of wave posed on an air structure of wood, which shelters all the stalls of the market. One finds there all the products of the producers of the area: fruits, vegetables, flowers but also fish, meat, pork-butchery including one or two stalls dedicated to Jabugo ham and finally a small supermarket “Caprado”.

 

A very good Tapas bar is located contrary to the main entrance and a restaurant “Cuines Santa-Catarina” of which we appreciate particularly the chart, next to the entry. In brief, the place worth a walk for its architecture, for shopping or to lunch.

 

Barcelona's Mercat de Santa Caterina in figures and dates:

The Mercat de Santa Caterina was inaugurated in 1848, making it one of Barcelona's oldest markets.

It occupies an area of around 4,200 square meters and is home to around 60 stalls and traders, offering a wide variety of fresh food products. A wide range of food products can be found here, including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheeses, cured meats, bakery and pastry products, as well as local and artisanal products.

The market building was renovated in 2005. One of its most distinctive features is its colorful wave-shaped roof, made of colorful ceramic tiles. It has become an emblematic element of Barcelona's modern architecture.

Covered market less touristy than the Boqueria in the Ramblas. Mercat Santa Caterina is very pleasant, with fruit and vegetables, cold meats.... but also clothes and restaurants. Well worth a visit

Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Green Line
Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała
