  • More than a market it's a fantastic place to visit and grab a bite. Local and imported fruit and nuts. Pickled goods and salted cod. Spices and olive oil of all sorts. Many restaurants and snack bars with beer on tap. A great experience for locals and tourists alike.
  • Very colorful and lively market. You can find any type of meat, fish and cheese in there. It is internal so you can go there anytime. There are many restaurants around the market and on the second floor
