The "Mercat de Santa Caterina" is a huge market hall in Barcelona, Spain with an extraordinary design. It's first inauguration was in the year 1848 and represented the first huge market of the city. It is located in Barcelona's quarter "La Ribera" in the old town - very close to the Cathedral (Catedral).
The new building of the market was finished in 2005 and is one of the latest architectonic treasures of the city. As said before it is a market hall and you can buy lots of different goods and food. There are some cafés and snack bars inside.
For sure the exterior of this building will be the most interesting thing to visit. The roof top is made of ceramic plates in a lot of colors and represent fruits and vegetables.
Nothing scheduled right now.
