Dance at Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona

Mercat de les Flors is near Montjuic and MNAC

Once the Barcelona Flower Market, Mercat de les Flors is now the setting for contemporary dance performances in the city. Each month there is something new and innovative on at Mercat de les Flors, and come summer the Grec Festival holds many of its dance performances there as well.

Most performances start around 9pm or 7pm of Sundays and prices range from inexpensive (8Euros) to mid-range (20Euros). Coming up this May and June, look for performances by Les Colporteurs, Shlomi Bitton and Co., and Daniel Abreu.

The theater, as I mentioned before, is set in the old Flower Market, and those who admire architecture will be interested in checking out this beautiful building which has been creatively maintained. The Mercat de les Flors is over by Montjuic, just off Plaza Espana. To get there, grab a cab, or take the Metro and get off at the green line Plaza Espana stop. From there it is about a 10 minute walk.

This area is wonderful because it is where the MNAC, Miro Museum and Caixa Forum Museums are located, plus the convention center is here. Despite all these important sites being clustered together, there is really very little in the way of bars and restaurants in the area. You will find some neighborhood spots, but don’t expect anything to fabulous. It may be best to eat before hand, or head to the center of the city after the show for dinner.
