If I were in Madrid or in Barcelona for Valentines, and still no idea about where to go, where to eat or what to do, this would be my first choice: having a culinary immersion in Mercado de San Miguel near Plaza Mayor or Mercado de San Antoni in Chueca. If in Barcelona then the famous La Boqueria is never a disappointment.
But my top selection would be oysters and champagne in Mercado de San Miguel at Ostras Daniel Sorlut, a bar with a wide selection of oysters, a 5 stars food especially if Valentines, in loved and…..
There are also other choice in this market, with an amazing architecture, and some food selection to make you dream and to make you want to taste almost every specialty.
Spain is for me my favorite country in Europe and maybe in the world for the food culture, the attitude towards life and the locals.
