Established as the city’s first-ever covered food market in the 19th century, Santa Caterina completed a major refurbishment in 2005 that includes the installation of an undulating, visually striking rooftop. Catalonia travel expert Teresa Parker of Spanish Journeys swears by Santa Caterina, noting that it’s an essential stop on her organized tours because “it conveys neighborhood market life better than La Boqueria does.” Her pro tip: “The nice guy at Olisoliva is always willing to offer tastes of Spanish and Catalan olive oils. Don’t go home without something special from there.”
