The San Antonio Market (officially and in Catalan, Mercat de Sant Antoni), is one of the largest and most important markets in Barcelona. It is made up of three markets: the fresh market, that is, food; the clothing one, also known as the Encants; and the Sunday that is of books. It is located in one of the blocks of the Ensanche district of Barcelona, where the Baluarte de San Antonio (in Catalan Baluard de Sant Antoni), one of the main entrances to the city, used to be walled. The building, inaugurated in 1882, was designed by the architect Antoni Rovira i Trías, inspired by the buildings of the Halles de Paris such as the Born Market. The construction was carried out by the company La Maquinista Terrestre y Marítima. It was the first market that was made outside the old city and its location obeys the original plan of Ildefonso Cerdá. Urban fine art photography of Barcelona.
