Mercat Princesa (Barcelona) ~ Gastro Emporium Housed in an Old Palace

This enchanting Barcelona food hall is housed in a 14th century palace with undulating stone arches and a delectable array of 17 speciality eateries.

The main emphasis is on tapas and seafood, with stalls serving up everything from authentic Basque pinchos to classic Catalan dishes, but you’ll also find international offerings such as sushi, dim sum and ceviche, as well as stone-cooked pizzas and beautiful burgers.

The central courtyard is drenched in natural sunlight and filled with rows of communal benches where you can get chatting with locals. And the romantic palm-sheltered nooks and snugs offer the perfect setting for wine sipping and whispering sweet nothings to that all-important person.
