Barcelona Sights

Mercat de Sant Antoni

Updated 03/10/2014

Fodor's Review

Now undergoing a vast restoration project, this fascinating and multifaceted market was scheduled to reopen, in all its former glory, in 2013, but the date has been pushed forward to 2016—mainly to allow for changes in the design to incorporate archaelogical remains of medieval Barcelona that were discovered underneath. Directors of the makeover project have vowed to maintain the market's character. Meanwhile, it's business as usual, under a large marquis on Carrer Tamarit: a combination food, clothing, and flea market—with a book, stamp, and coin market on the north end, on Carrer d'Urgell between Carrer Tamarit and Carrer Floridablanca, on Sunday morning. The Sant Antoni market is a mammoth steel hangar at the junction of Ronda de Sant Antoni and Comte d'Urgell designed in 1882 by Antoni Rovira i Trias, the winner of the competition for the planning of Barcelona's Eixample. Considered the city's greatest masterpiece of ironwork architecture, the Greek cross–shape market covers an entire block on the edge of the Eixample. Some of the best Moderniste stall facades in Barcelona distinguish this exceptional space.
