Mercado Central de Atarazanas: Tours & Experiences
Have you ever been to Mercado Central de Atarazanas?
Fish, meat, cheese, and fruit and vegetables: all fantastically fresh and at the best prices. The fish section in particular is a visual and olfactory feast. Definitely the place to come if you want to impress dinner guests with giant prawn and lobster-like creatures or if you're thinking of making a twenty-person paella!
The market building has undergone a refurbishment after being closed for a number of years. If you enter the market with you eyes at street level, they will certainly raise to gaze in marvel at the stained glass window oposite fit for any cathedral.
A great place to have lunch after you've bought up half the Mediterranean is in "El Bar de los Pueblos", opposite the market to the left as you face the main entrance. It's a prawn-head on the floor sort of place, where white-shirted waiters shout and barge their way round with authority. Good, filling menus and very cheap tapas and raciones.
