Santa Caterina Market by Bed and Breakfast in BarcelonaSanta Caterina Market brings an orgy of colour to the otherwise austere grey of one of Barcelona’s oldest districts, El Born. Santa Caterina is one of Barcelona’s liveliest and most historic markets, its playful contemporary design by Enric Miralles (who were responsible for the Gas Natural Tower in Barceloneta).

The collage roof weighs 604 tonnes, fixed into place over 109 arches of differing slopes and forms. Seen from above it’s a sea of colour. Beneath the glass floor are glimpses of the original convent. attracting lovers of architecture as well as shoppers.

The market’s main restaurant is an ample space lined with long benches and an industrial edge to its decor. It serves a broad range of Asian, Mediterranean food and has been included in Time Out’s top ten restaurants in Barcelona. Prices are upper mid-range.

Address: Avinguda Francesc Cambó 16, Born-Ribera
