Sant Antoni Market

sant_antoni_market

The Mercat de Sant Antoni is one of the largest markets in Barcelona and has some great, authentic foodstalls. On Sunday mornings the arcades around the market are host to a large second-hand book market. Though marred by too many stalls selling video games, porn and DVDs it still is great place for an hour’s browsing. Get there early as it gets very busy.  Across the road, Els Tres Tombs (Ronda San Antoni 11) has good tapas and an excellent vantage point for watching people stroll by.

The steel-skeleton building (1872-82) was designed by Antoni Rovira i Trias. It is to be remodelled over the next few years.
