Accessible La Boqueria in Barcelona
Could La Boqueria in Barcelona be the #1 tourist trap in the World?
Yes, the Mercat de Sant Josep (as La Boqueria market in Barcelona is more formally called) is a very colourful market.
But it is absolutely packed.
Not packed with local shoppers though.
But packed full of Barcelona tourists (especially after around 10am – when the tourists arrive en masse).
And where there are crowds of tourists in Barcelona, there are LOTS of pickpockets.
So instead, head to the much more relaxed Mercat de Santa Caterina.
And being more relaxed, and a LOT less busy, it’s far easier to negotiate in a wheelchair.
Thank you – and enjoy your visit to Barcelona!
