Central Market is one of the stops on the open top bus tour (Turibus) and well worth a visit. A walk through each of the floors, shows a great variety and range of fish, meat and cheese. There are also a fabulous displays of flowers and plants. I'm sure that tourists who are self catering are spoilt for choice. To... More

This is worth a visit if you want to buy Spanish produce as a tourist but there are not really places to sit and eat like tapas bars etc - we counted just one - the building is beautiful though

This is an absolute must see. The market is filled with fresh sea food and vegetables and fruit, plus other items too. When you visit go prepared to have lunch there, once inside the market you can pick up fresh fish which they will deliver to a nearby restaurant who will gladly prepare it for you.

Fantastic market. It's a great place to just wander round, it's very clean and the variety of things to buy is good. The fruit is amazing. There are places to have a coffee, buy cheese, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, sweets, pastries and lots of other things. There are also places outside where you can get something to eat and...

Loved looking round all the stalls and the gorgeous food on offer - everything you could ever need! We bought a few things for dinner and then stopped for a small lunch and glass of wine in the tapas bar in the middle of the market. The wine was cheap and the tapas were absolutely incredible - some of the... More

Vibrant market full of fresh fruit, veg, meat, fish, sweets and souvenirs for tourists. The traders are friendly and offer good prices for their produce and a cheeky taster if you're lucky! It's a lovely building to visit even just to appreciate the architecture..enjoy!

Well worth a visit the building itself is well worth a look but the main attraction is the local produce and atmosphere. The food is local and fresh we bought some goats cheese, jamon, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, onions and bread and fartons to have for our lunch in our apartment and the food was superb full of flavour and so...

The building itself is very interesting, but the main attraction is, of course, the wonderful selection of very high class produce. It`s well worth visiting even if you do not want to buy anything!
