Since its origin,Barcelona has been a commercial city.Fruit,vegetable and food markets have a long tradition in the city and are deeply rooted within the mediterranean culture.There are three markets that you should not miss:La Boquería,Mercat de Sant Antoni and Mercat del Born.The latter has turned into a history museum,since in its recent restoration it has been found the remains of Barcelona in the XVII century,still in a good condition.
If you have decided to have a parking close to your residence,Barcelona is well-equipped with parkings,but it is not the same to find a parking close to Camp Nou,parking Sagrada Familia,parking Las Ramblas or parking Cruises which are very famous tourist sites and with chance of finding a"parking lot full"sign if you arrive without reservation,as it is to find a parking at parking diagonal mar shopping center,for example,that's usually more simple.It is therefore a good idea to book in advance with Parkimeter especially if you are looking for parking centre of Barcelona or parking near Barcelona Harbour.
