Nice fresh meet and fish market in the center of the city. Bought some spices and olive oil soap for gifts. No bad smell, like other fresh meat markets. Quite loud place as everyone is trying to sell his/her product.

Busy market, mostly selling fish, meat, fruit and veg. Very noisy, lots of shouting going on all the time, gives it atmosphere, wasn't to impressed, didn't buy anything.
