Mercat de la Concepció (Markets)

Mercat de la Concepció

The Mercat de la Concepció in Barcelona is part of a long list of the oldest markets in the city. It is situated in the heart of the Eixample district and opened its doors for the first time in 1888. It takes its name from the nearby church which is called the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The magnificent structure was designed by the famous Barcelonian architect Antoni Tria i Roviras, who also designed another famous market in Barcelona called Sant Antoni.

"The Market of the Flowers"

One of the characteristics that make this market so special is its large area dedicated to florists, which is is why this market is known amongst locals as the Mercat de les Flors or "Market of the Flowers". There are cacti, plants, flowers, herbs, and much more. If you're stuck for a last minute gift, then luck would have it that this part of the market is open 24 hours a day, 365 days per year... We have to wonder how many relationships this place has saved ;).
