That doesn’t mean is bad, it only means the prices are higher than in a regular “Mercado” so won’t be seeing a lot of locals doing their everyday shopping there. The good thing is there is always a lot of people so food are mostly...More

performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
