Barcelona markets: The top ten
Food is an integral part of Catalan culture, and Barcelona is the perfect example of this. With its 39 food markets spread throughout the city's neighbourhoods, tourists and locals alike don't have to travel far to see the displays of the fresh products that line the market aisles. From fresh produce, like fruits, veggies, meat and fish, to a more widespread array of food, flowers and boutiques, the markets around town are all unique in their own way. The bars and restaurants in and around the markets are some of the best places to treat your taste buds too. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to the best things to do in Barcelona

Mercat de la Llibertat
La Llibertat is slightly more intimate and has a local, village market feel to it. There are fewer stalls around the outside of the market and instead the intricate, metal ornamentation above the doors and on the roof draw your eyes upwards. Inside you'll find a Bonpreu supermarket as well as the fresh food stands. Seafood stalls are particularly prevalent here; indeed the stock of one is so fresh you can watch it as it crawls around its tank.
