Animated and colorful like a Neapolitan market, ordered like a Swiss one, with the choice of products worthy of a shopping center.
It is the Boqueria, the largest market in Barcelona and Spain, located at number 91 of the Rambla. A large iron building accomodates kiosks of all kinds: vegetables, fish, desserts, meat, ruled by women in traditional costume. A colorful mosaic of things to see, taste and buy.
The beauty of the kiosks (many with columns) and the perfectly maintained layout of the products on sale are astonishing. Watch out for pickpockets, lurking in every corner.
If you rent an apartment and want to buy something to cook, go to Boqueria in the early morning and keep an eye on the Barcelonians, who know what and where to buy. If you are looking for something to eat while wandering through Barcelona, choose the dried fruit or fresh smoothies counter.
Opening hours: Mon - Sat (08.00 AM - 08.30 PM)
How to reach: Metro Liceu, Bus S9, V13
Address: La Rambla, 91, 08001 Barcelona, Spagna
Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
