Barcelona City Guide The best things to see and do in Barcelona

Mercat de Sant Antoni

The Sant Antoni Market was built in 1882, ideally located in the Eixample Esquerra district of Barcelona, between El Raval and Poble Sec. It is a marvel to behold, due to its imposing building, which has stood the test of time after being an innovation during its construction phase. The Sant Antoni Market takes the shape of a Greek-Cross style plan, which is inset into a larger square. What makes this market so special is the fact that you can find stalls for clothes, bags, toys, crafts and other flea market goods on top of its fresh products.

It is a worthwhile visit to make to Sant Antoni, so you can see the buildings beautiful details such as the wooden shutters, ornate cast iron railings, pretty glazed tiles, half-moon windows and the use of reds, yellows and white, all of which shows its proud Catalan heritage.

When the Mercat de Sant Antoni reopened in 2012, it became a significant monument for the city of Barcelona, because not only has it been an asset to the area of Sant Antoni, but it also increased the value of the properties in Barcelona’s surrounding neighborhoods.
