Mercat de la Boqueria, Barcelona part 2

We missed this place the first day and on day two in Barcelona, we got a map and found it off of Las Ramblas. Mercat de la Boqueria is a historic market in Barcelona where vendors bring there goods, and my what goods do they have. For history on the market click here. Below are some pictures I took while at the market. The amount of pork there was astonishing, vendors would scold me for taking pictures so I couldn't
snap photos of everything (giant pigs head will remain in my memory)
Piggy legs

and more..

Rabbit anyone?

fresh seafood


So many things

enjoying some chocolate and churros

We bought some fruit at the market which was really good, Seeing that much meat put me off pork for a while though. One thing I saw that scarred me a little bit was behind the market, there were garbage bins full of pig entrails and other goodies. There was a dog who couldn't be happier chowing down on them.

This place was awesome so definitely check it out if you're ever in Barcelona!
