Not a place to spend a lot of time, just a quick visit will do. Beautiful building and excellent facilities.

The Market hall is huge, impressive, a reminder of the now defunct "Les Halles" in Paris. I don't think there is any food on earth you cannot find here. Take you camera, the vendors love to show of their market stands.

Excellent cafes in a beautiful setting. Good stop in the city to take the load off your feet when in town shopping. Its also in a less busy area.

All kinds of food including drinks are sold here, where many shoppers were seen purchasing their wares. Coffee is available, and of good quality. Be careful of the birds that dive bomb unfortunate visitors!

An eye catching market decorated with colourful tiles and distinctive domes. Very clean even at the fish and seafood section. You can spend an hour looking at the fresh produce, jamon and cheese, and artisan products. Popular with the locals including the restauranteurs. You have to go and visit, we certainly did, three times.
