Mercat Santa Caterina (Market Holy Catherine) is the latest market built in Barcelona. Totally renovated in 2005 with brilliance by the architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT, is a little marvel located in the district of Ribera in Ciutat Vella. Beautiful architectural idea for this multicoloured ceramics roof having the shape of wave posed on an air structure of wood, which shelters all the stalls of the market. One finds there all the products of the producers of the area: fruits, vegetables, flowers but also fish, meat, pork-butchery including one or two stalls dedicated to Jabugo ham and finally a small supermarket “Caprado”.
A very good Tapas bar is located contrary to the main entrance and a restaurant “Cuines Santa-Catarina” of which we appreciate particularly the chart, next to the entry. In brief, the place worth a walk for its architecture, for shopping or to lunch.
