People Watching at Els Encants

Since I’ve been in Barcelona I have probably walked down to the Els Encants street market about two dozen times to find one thing or another. I’ve taken my camera several times and taken pictures or things or the market in general, but today I put on my zoom lens so that I could stand further back and go people watching without attracting too much attention. Els Encants has much to offer. Since it’s one of the longest running markets in Europe in the same location, it’s in a very old part of town and it shows.

and sophisticated.

So, if you are ever in Barcelona on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday, make sure you make time to see the many wonderful people and things that there are to find at Els Encants. And I leave you today with some of the sights and things that there are to be seen at Els Encants.
