“Pleasant market to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

If you are in Santa Cruz it is a must to visit the market. It's busy, real Spanish and you get a good view of Spanish customs. You can have a drink or a tapa with the locals and it's not expensive!

“Great market - also great on Sundays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Totally agree with the previous reviewer - a visit to this should be compulsory for all UK Town planners. Great design and lovely place. On sunday's the whole area is surrounded by a huge market with hundreds of stalls.

“A very good introduction to Santa Cruz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Looking to go into Santa Cruz from the bus station, you cannot avoid this place. My wife and I love browsing in markets. We like to sample the colour displays of the fruit and veg stalls, the aroma of spices and the fresh smell of fish. We found them there. The buiding is very original with its sets of courtyads, baconies and It is brightly painted. In one of the courtyards there is a working fountain. The tower is majestic. The entrance to the market is more picturesque when you come from town after crossing the bridge, with its statues. We enjoyed it.
