A nice local market. Great to see the types of fish and meats available and the speciality of some of the traders.

We visited this market after seeing it on Tripadvisor. Had to google the address. It was a huge market with lots of seafood, meat, veggies, cheese & fruit. I can absolutely recommend to visit it if you're in Cagliari.
