A variety of cultural shops and a public market full of a variety of fresh food outlets and a great place to buy fish, meat, bakery items and the freshest fruit. Well worth a visit and the variety of outlets can fill a few hours.

A unique spot in town with great energy, fun and crowded food and craft market, restaurants, bars and galleries. Great place to sit outside and watch the boats and people go by, set close against the growing skyline of the city. Well worth it.
