  • Located in the heart of the Old Town, in the Ribera district, the Santa Caerina market has an exceptional history in Barcelona.  In fact, it was the first covered market in Barcelona.

    Opened in  1848, the project started in 1844 by royal decree that granted the city land from one of their ecclesiastical buildings.  The spacious, modern market building was constructed on the former site of the Convent of Santa Caterina, from which it takes its name. During the post-Civil War period, Santa Caterina became the main food supplier to the towns on the outskirts of Barcelona. People from Sant Adrià, Santa Coloma and Mataró came on the tram to buy food in this market in times of shortage. Today, the market is still worth a visit: the modern exterior ushers us into a traditional market with food stalls and restaurants which serve outstanding-quality produce.

    The market was recently renovated by the team at EMBT to go beyond a simple restoration and conservation project, but to become a new focal point of this rehabilitated neighborhood. The highlight is the colorful roof tiles.
