The foods are so fresh and delicious must try. They can rated as professional cook although they are situated inside the market but with their food presentation are also look pretty beside the best taste. Really want to go again miss their foods there.

After the Gaudi and the Cathedral, the Boqueria Mercado is a must visit for anyone who loves or cares about good food. It is a glorious, tantalizing array - a visual and literal feast. Nestled within the market is El Quim. Take a seat at...More

You have to go the the Boqueria Market in the hearth of Las Ramblas. It is worth visiting. ANd one there, stop at El Quim for tapas and a "caña" (beer). It is an unforgettable experience on one of the best tapas place in Barcelona.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
