La Boqueria, Barcelona
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them.

Did I agree with that? Similar to Paris but more vividly, bigger and more colorful. Not so similar actually. Sure do. We were direct friends of Pugdemont. Laughed. been back 4 times. Many juices drunk.

There are hygienic conditions which, in Italy, would be life imprisonment. Many desks, in fact, are without a showcase, leaving food exposed to the air and the hands of the people. In addition, being an open market, there fly freely even our pigeon friends, therefore, you can imagine the condition.
