Barcelona: La Boqueria Market

One of Europe’s great food markets (and one of the oldest), La Boqueria is a feast for your senses. Designed as a neoclassical square in the mid-1800s, the market’s iconic columns and Moderniste gate with stained glass trim were uncovered and revamped in the 2001 renovation. At the crack of dawn, you’ll see chefs seeking out the day’s freshest ingredients, followed by locals and tourists. In addition to seafood, an abundance of cheese, mushrooms, dried peppers, spices and whole legs of Iberico ham, there are pint-size tapas bars serving great Spanish-style bites. My favorite: Bar Pinotxo’s razor clams served spiked with chile, parsley, garlic and olive oil.
