Santa Caterina Market

Opened in 1848, the Santa Caterina market was the first covered market in Barcelona. It has recently been completely renovated with a modern look but in keeping with a traditional Catalan market.

The brightly coloured undulating roof was designed by architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue. This extraordinary new roof consists of 325,000 ceramic pieces of over 60 colours representing the colours of the fruits and vegetables sold inside.
