Barcelona's largest and most fruit-filled market, the Boqueria is located in the middle of the famous walkway, La Rambla. Once you're finished shopping, there are tons of things to keep you entertained around the Boqueria Market.
Our number five pick continues with the theme of food and drink. An evening tapas tour in the close by Born or Gotico neighborhoods is one of the best ways to truly become acquainted with Barcelona's extraordinary culinary scene. Bar/tapas hop from rustic bar to bar and enjoy Barcelona's gourmet as well as slightly greasy tapas.
If you want to explore a whole new neighborhood, check out our number six pick. The Raval is one of Barcelona's less frequented areas by tourists, yet it's an unexplored gem in many ways. Full of characters, unique architecture and really cool bars and restaurants this is definitely worth a visit and is just a short walk from the Boqueria market.
Walk a few feet down from the Boqueria and you'll bump into none other than Christopher Columbus. People are still unsure as to where he's pointing exactly, but this is a Barcelona highlight definitely worth seeing or at least glancing at from below.
