When we speak about markets in Barcelona, we always have in mind Sant Antoni Market or La Boqueria Market, and instead we forget real treasures such as the Mercat Galvany (Galvany market).
The Mercat Galvany is located in Sarria, near Barcelona City Street and Barcelona City Seven accommodation. This market is billed as an artistic monument and there are many who consider him one of the most beautiful markets in Barcelona.

At Christmas, in addition to the usual decoration that can be seen in many places, the Mercat Galvany riding a very large and spectacular nativity scene, so if you visit Barcelona at Christmas and you have a reason to visit 😉
