In the evening it’s high time to make a walk to Torre Agbar , which is known as one of the most stylish modern sights of the city.

Do you want to take a walk in one of the most unusual markets in whole Spain? If yes, simply head to Mercat de Sant Antoni . You will find this market in the historic district of El Raval . The market is open in carriages of an old train. The carriages were restored and covered with a skilled artwork, making them look very unusual and creative. The history of this market is no less interesting. The nearby market of Sant Marti required restoration, so it was temporarily closed and vendors were offered to move their stalls to the carriages installed not far away. The Sant Marti was successfully restored, but it was decided not to demolish the “trading train”. That was Mercat de Sant Antoni that is still open.
Masia Freixa If you want to buy the most unusual souvenirs in Barcelona, one way to do that is to head to Mercat del Encants.

This bar is not known to the majority of tourists, so it is mostly visited by locals.

They can skillfully freeze, becoming immovable like real statues, and then suddenly “become alive”, thrilling people who pass by.
