I love this place, it's full of interesting goodies, food and surprises! The architecture is amazing, the internal space is splendid and the Glass Arcade is a delight. The atmosphere at the late night markets has to be experienced to be believed....truly outstanding!

This is a great little market with lots of interesting stalls. All around are lots of little side streets with a wide variety of stalls. Anything can be bought there such as jewellery, clothes, food and antiques.

The clothing stalls are the more unusual items - certainly not your run of the mill high street stuff. Don' remember seeing any shoe stalls, but there might very well be.
