Barcelona: Mercat de la Boqueria

This was where I visited first thing on Saturday morning. It was one of the best things about Barcelona, and is one of the most stunning food markets I have ever been to. It is pulsing with life, colourful, busy, bright, the smell of fresh fish is everywhere, people shouting in Spanish and Catalan, women hacking at great fish carcasses, still live shellfish trying to escape from their captors... I was overwhelmed and very envious of my friends who took me there - they only live a few blocks from the market.
