The central market right behind the metropolitan church is an interesting place to see local people life. Many shops, food stalls, and fresh market are under one roof. The building is like a nuclear bunker

This market is near the main plaza downtown in the historic center. It is below street level.There are several sections. There is a food area serving many types of local dishes. Then there are the crafts and clothing, and then just about anything you may need for household goods.

Located just behind the Metropolitan Cathedral with many shops selling souvenirs. More like a flea market. Has food section at bottom floor. A few restaurants there you can try some local food. Try your bargain skills at those souvenir vendors.

For us El Mercado is a place to we must visit in every country that we visit. It is a place where you can interact with the locals, try their food, and know a little bit about the local people daily routine.
