This is a must-visit location in the heart of the old city centre. As well as the impressive market building itself, there are plenty of interesting stalls outside selling a range of products. There are a couple of especially good stalls selling paella dishes and...More

We enjoyed wandering about the many markets stalls on a Sunday, there was everything available to guy and very cheap good prices, lots of clothes and shoes. It is also surrounded by many cafes and restaurants, a great area to shop and eat.

There is so much to do around the plaza by the market. Loads of places to have tapas, meet with friends and grab a drink. Worth checking out during the day.

Nothing surpasses the glow of a Spanish market, and this Valencia gem is no exception. It helps to be in a jewel box of a building

For this place, you can say that is the heart of the old city. The structure is beautiful and you can find any type of food in there. Usually, it is very crowded with people, so you will fill the city vibe at its fullest.

Not to be mean, but it is a pretty typical plaza that you can find in just about any European city. As might be expected, was pretty crowded with tourists and offered not much to offset that hassle.

If the market is not open it is still and there is many more better plazas to visit with more action and attractions.
