Mercado Central

Valencia stands at the centre of an agricultural region that irrigation has made one of the most fertile in Europe, and its fertility is celebrated in the city’s vast central market, that extends of 8000 sq m, and accommodates more than a thousand stalls. The steel and glass building, topped by a colossal dome, was constructed in a Spanish Modernist style in 1928 by the local architects Alejandro Soleri March and Franciscio Guardia Vich. The market is richly ornamented with colourful ceramic tiles and mosaics. All kinds of food are sold at the stalls, including salt cod from northern Europe and the varied catches of the local fishing fleet.
