The Colon Market is located at Cirilo Amoros, 63. The market is located in an area called the Primer Ensanche (First Suburb). This was the first area to be developed during the 19th century. The people living in this suburb wanted a public market nearby, so the City Council set aside 4337 square meters for it. The architect chosen was Francisco Mora, who was influenced by the Modernist Catalan school which included Domenech I Montaner.
The completed building measured 100 x 47 meters. The market is spacious and the building is decorated with colorful ceramics. The market was opened on Christmas Eve of 1916 and had a very good acceptance by the public. Today the market has many cafeterias and two flower markets on the ground level. The below ground level is the place where the market is. The market was restored in 2003 and today it is an upscale recreational place.
