The markets are always the places to go to feel the city's vibe. Located in downtown area, it is a must-see. Filled with local flavours, fresh vegetables and fruits, snacks. You can even have lunch here. Very clean, people are very nice and helpful.

I don’t like the place much. To much people, overpriced food and not much to see. Maybe jump for a few minutes but that’s enough.

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
