After being renovated and closed for almost 10 years, Sant Antoni market has finally celebrated  the long-awaited opening.

The historical building of the Sant Antoni, the oldest market in Barcelona, has been closed since October, 2009. It has been constructed by the architect Antoni Rovira i Trias in the years 1879-1882.


Its renovation has cost more than 60 million euros. Now it has 235 stands inside, distributed in five levels on a surface of 53.388 square meters.

52 of the stands are food stands. Others sell clothes, books and antiquities.

Sant Antoni will have a Lidl supermarket inside,  approximately 400 squares of parking and a gym in the future.

The visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the archaeological remains that were found under the market  during the construction works. This remains are the reason why the renovation works have taken so long.
