Chinese dragon on facade of early modernist building "Casa Bruno Cuadros" on La Rambla 82.  Local residents call this building the "Casa dels Paraigües" which means "House of Umbrellas." It was built in 1858 and remodeled with the current facade for the umbrella shop on the ground floor in 1883 by Josep Vilaseca Casanovas. This explains the umbrella under the dragon and various other oriental umbrellas on the facade.

Smoothies have become popular in recent years at La Boqueria. They are delicious, but check the prices. Some of the vendors charge way too much! €1.50 is the maximum you should pay for a smoothie in the market and even that is a bit expensive.
