Entering inside the covered glass pavilion of La Boqueria, you will find colorful displays and stunning food vignettes that make you want to sample everything on site (vendors freely give samples out). There are photo opportunities walking down every aisle and you will see displays of catalan foods, produce, and local foods prepared daily. The cafes are engaging and filled with people dining on local specialties, these are great for capturing candid photographs.  Just explore around and look for some great angles, displays and engaging vendors and you will find plenty of photo opportunities to capture beautiful images.

Foodie culture

When you visit La Boqueria you can see how important food is to Catalan and daily Spanish life. Ingredients are typically purchased daily at these markets and finding quality products that are in season are always preferred. That’s one of the reasons why dining out in Barcelona ranks high in food experiences with such devotion to fresh and quality products being served.
