More than 61,000 shops and 43 markets are keen to see you.
Restaurants are now back on the menu

That waiter who knows how you like your coffee, the head waiter who always finds you the best table, the cook who prepares your favourite dish, the ice-cream man who cools you down during the summers... Barcelona has a large range of quality food offers. It’s now time to enjoy them again.
