Nice place where having a walk and eat something fresh. I had the hotel nearby so it has been a nice spot to buy something for lunch time.

We were delighted to visit this market which dates back more than 100 years. The historic Mercado Central is frequented by locals and features meats, produce, fish, spices, etc. A trip to the Central Market is a memorable shopping experience.
