Why locals love it

A must stop for every single palate - both locals and tourists! Enjoy the explosion of aromas, tastes, shapes and colours of different types of food and drinks you could not possibly imagine. Prices can sometimes be way too touristic, but you can still find some bargains... and anyway, it's worth the culinary experience and the landmark!

Why you should visit it

Alright, it can get quite packed with tourists and locals, but this vibrant market, which first opened in 1916, combines the beauty of it's iron structure and the trendiness of it's gastronomy and shops at the heart of the old town. Try new dishes, unexpected tapas, delicious regional wines and tasty sweets!

Special tip

Take some time to enjoy at least three or four "tapas" and a "chato" (smaller glass of wine) or two!

As a first-time tourist in Spain, it's one of the best introductions to Spanish tapas.
