  • Very interesting especially for those who want to see what's there in the region. The surprise was with the variety. Kinds of seafood imptrssiona, besides having some not seen anywhere. As in all Spain, variety of olives, cheese, raw ham tanned (jamon) is too large. Interesting also is the variety of fruits and vegetables. Everything fresh. This is due to the ease, the port of arrival of the products from the North of Africa like Morocco. The metallic Structure is also in building another curiosity.

  • An absolutely wonderful market with lots of fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, shellfish, meat and everything else you need to prepare a meal at home. Or enjoy all the fantastic restaurants, bars and tapas-places here. If you like high-quality food you will love Mercado Central de Atarazanas.
  • Lovely indoor market selling tonnes of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat. Go early for the fish! We bought some delicious olives of all varieties, lovely salad vegetables and fruit. Can have fresh oysters and a drink. Starts to close around 2 pm.
