Travellers who love food and are visiting Europe should be sure to stop by Barcelona, as the city offers some of the best markets in the country.

Foodies will definitely appreciate the variety, as there are more than 40 markets in the city alone, according to the Los Angeles Times. Travellers should be sure to visit La Boqueria, as the news provider reports that this is one of the largest food markets in Europe.

This can be a great way to save some money, as individuals will have the opportunity to buy their food to cook. Not only will it save tipping at a restaurant, but it could also be a healthy alternative for people who care about the nutritional factors of their meals.

Another health bonus about going to markets? It allows tourists to walk around and peruse, keeping the body active as opposed to sitting in a restaurant. This could be a lovely way to spend an afternoon during one's vacation.
