Fodor's Review

This marketplace, a splendid carnival of colors with a roller-coaster rooftop, was restored by the late Enric Miralles, whose widow Benedetta Tagliabue finished the project in 2005. Undulating wood and colored-ceramic mosaic ceilings redolent of both Gaudí and Miró cover a bustling and dramatically illuminated market with an excellent restaurant, Cuines de Santa Caterina (93/268–9918), and several good bars and cafés. The archeological section of the building

is at the eastern end, showing Visigothic remains and sections of the 13th-century church and convent that stood here until the early 18th century.
