Santa Caterina Market – Miralles Tagliabue EMBT – Barcelona

Posted by


The Santa Caterina Market was designed by
Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue. The renovation was completed in 2005 to modernize
an existing market, preserving the neoclassical facades. A colorful curving ceramic mosaic roof is
placed over the market and recalls the awnings over market stalls and the architecture of
Gaudi. A wood roof with long span steel trusses provides
a delightful ceiling for the market stalls. The renovation exposed the ruins of a monastery
that once occupied the site. There is no shortage of good food nearby,
but the market’s La Torna next to the entrance has great food with a counter where you can
watch all the action.
