Mercat Santa Caterina

Mercat Santa Caterina (Market Holy Catherine) is the latest market built in Barcelona. Totally renovated in 2005 with brilliance by the architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT, is a little marvel located in the district of Ribera in Ciutat Vella. Beautiful architectural idea for this multicoloured ceramics roof having the shape of wave posed on an air structure of wood, which shelters all the stalls of the market. One finds there all the products of the producers of the area: fruits, vegetables, flowers but also fish, meat, pork-butchery including one or two stalls dedicated to Jabugo ham and finally a small supermarket “Caprado”.

 

A very good Tapas bar is located contrary to the main entrance and a restaurant “Cuines Santa-Catarina” of which we appreciate particularly the chart, next to the entry. In brief, the place worth a walk for its architecture, for shopping or to lunch.

 

Barcelona's Mercat de Santa Caterina in figures and dates:

The Mercat de Santa Caterina was inaugurated in 1848, making it one of Barcelona's oldest markets.

It occupies an area of around 4,200 square meters and is home to around 60 stalls and traders, offering a wide variety of fresh food products. A wide range of food products can be found here, including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheeses, cured meats, bakery and pastry products, as well as local and artisanal products.

The market building was renovated in 2005. One of its most distinctive features is its colorful wave-shaped roof, made of colorful ceramic tiles. It has become an emblematic element of Barcelona's modern architecture.

Covered market less touristy than the Boqueria in the Ramblas. Mercat Santa Caterina is very pleasant, with fruit and vegetables, cold meats.... but also clothes and restaurants. Well worth a visit

a great address
Our meal at this charming restaurant was marked by exquisite dishes, including chuletón as a main course and innovative starters such as wild boar mortadella. The attentive service and unique desserts, although limited in choice, completed a memorable culinary experience.
