images 1 and 2 - El nou Mercat de Santa Caterina by EMBT
located in the Barri Gotic.
we arrived too late to get inside. next time... so, we just sat outside for a while checking everything out. after 20 minutes or so we left and got a couple chicken empanadas
image 3 - an Aprila, a Vespa and the ancient Roman wall.
image 4 - Raval, Carrer de les Carretes. Our apartment was on this street.
image 5 - Rambla del Raval ...not the hyper-touristed Las Ramblas
, but a neighborhood rambla nearby. We loved it here - very relaxed area. small groups congregate on the benches and lawns that line the rambla. a dozen or so restaurants and bars in sight, a few others just out of sight, 10 minute stroll to Las Ramblas
, a bit longer to the Barri Gotic.
