It looks as though this old building has been restored relatively recently and it houses a fabulous market. Fish, veg, meat all fresh and little cafes inside and out. Obviously mostly a locals place but the vendors were very helpful in recommending things to try....More
I have reviewed this because of the wonderful building. A superb structure in the centre of Alicante which houses the central market, which as we found to our cost closes mid afternoon for the day. So make sure you get there early enough. The building...More
