About the history if the Boqueria Market

 
The first mention of the Boqueria market of Barcelona dates from 1217, when tables were installed near the old door of the city to sell meat. From December 1470, a market selling pigs occurred at this site. At this time, the Market had the name Mercat Bornet or was (until 1794) simply known as Mercat de la Palla (Straw Market).

 

At the beginning, the market was not enclosed and did not have an official statute, it was regarded as a simple extension of the market of Plaça Nova which then extended to the Plaça del Pi.
Later, the authorities decided to construct a separate market on La Rambla, housing mainly fishmongers and butchers. It is not until 1826 that the market is legally recognized and a convention held in 1835 decides construction of an official place.

 

Construction began March 19, 1840 under the direction of architect Mas Vilà. The market officially opened the same year, but the plans for the building were modified many times. The official inauguration of the structure was finally made in 1853. In 1911, the new fish market was opened and, in 1914, the metal roof that still exists today was constructed.

  2. mercato la boqueria di barcellona - rosamaria da pomigliano (6 Ott 2013 - 09:15)

    sono appena rientrata da barcellona e la cosa che mi ha sorpreso di piu' e' il famoso mercato della boqueria. bellissimo , un vero tripudio di colori, suoni ,odori e sapori.una fantasia eccezionale nell'esposizione della merce di ottima qualita',pulito e ordinato, anche l'articolo piu'insignificante e' esposto con gusto e fantasia.c'e' di tutto e si mangia benissimo, da provare i gamberetti con insalatina nel contenitore di plastica che costa appena 2,50 euro e che e' molto sostanzioso.da non perdere.

  3. Mercato bucheria - Isabella (16 Ago 2013 - 10:15)

    Semplicemente meraviglioso! I colori, i profumi, tanta confusione...troppo bello e si mangia benissimo, di tutto spendendo poco!!! È l'anima di Barcellona! Ci tornerò sicuramente...

  4. Jamon iberico - Il viaggiatore (28 Lug 2013 - 23:00)

    Da evitare assolutamente qualsiasi acquisto presso le 2 rivendite/chioschi all'ingresso del mercato della Bouqueria, sono dei truffatori con prodotti di scarsa qualità .

  13. La Boqueria - Luigi Monico - Italia (23 Nov 2010 - 02:55)

    La Boqueria e' il piu' bel mercato coperto che io abbia mai visto. Ogni banco o esposizione di frutta, verdura, carne o pesce è paragonabile ad un quadro. Alla Boqueria ho mangiato buono, tenero e gustoso stufado de ternero della mia lunga vita!
    Non si può andarsene da Barcellona senza aver visitato la Boqueria.

  14. Boqueria - Brunella (14 Gen 2010 - 12:45)

    Sorprendente ed inaspettato trionfo di profumi e colori, per i golosi e non, siamo entrati con curiosità ma da scettici.
    Non lasciate Barcellona senza vedere questa meraviglia !!

  20. La Boqueria Market - Annie - Melbourne Australia (18 Giu 2008 - 07:59)

    Was at the market 18 mths ago and had a fantastic time discovering foods/nuts/fruit etc I had never seen before in Australia. A Cooks paradise - I loved it. We stayed just off the Ramblas so shopped there every morning for our breakfast. Great atmosphere. Saw Rick Stein's program on Lifestyle last night where he visited the market. Great stuff.

  21. La Boqueria Market - Wendy C (21 Feb 2008 - 18:46)

    I had breakfast in one of the cafes - gambas y sardinas - prawns and sardines, on the grill with bread and a glass of champagne (cava). That's the way to start your visit to La Boqueria. The best market on the planet. The hams, cheeses, fish, vegetables, fruit of the area, or from other parts of Spain. Fabulous.

  22. La Boqueria - Kate Howe Gower South Wales (20 Feb 2008 - 13:34)

    THe market is fantastic, try to have a meal at one of the Tapas bars serving the freshest fish, look for the busiest ones and be patient, its worth the wait!

  23. the market!!!! - shannon and haymish (29 Nov 2007 - 15:19)

    woah
    gorgeous babes
    lovely lovely place
    us two went there and spent days viewing the exciting colours and being enticed by the fragrances of the fresh fruit
    better than anywhere else ever in the world ever, just ever! Ooh and the herbs too.
    Wed just like to say
    "visit the market"
    "its the best place ever"
    "we swear"



    delicious.

  24. pistachio nuts - donna (27 Set 2007 - 23:48)

    oh how i wish i had bought pounds and pounds of the pistachio nuts from Spain. It's been 4 years since being there in Barcelona and I want them!!! Any ideas?

  25. Boquera Market - Ken of Bolton U.K. (25 Ago 2007 - 20:09)

    Really enjoy having look round this market and having a glass of cava at Bar Pinoxto, will be there in September. It just about beats Bolton Fish Market.

  26. Barcelona Market - Shirley (25 Ago 2007 - 19:56)

    Barcelona market is well worth a visit, we love going in December, mixing with the Spanish and Catalan people, who sure know how to live life to the full

  27. when to go - chef Doreen (29 Mar 2007 - 07:48)

    The market's phenomenal, but so are the crowds. Any day it's open is great to go and shop, eat there except for Sat, the busiest day when whole families, baby carriages, etc. go as well. Be patient, it's worth it!!

  28. boqueria market - lesley smith (13 Set 2006 - 21:39)
