Located in the heart of Ciutat Vella, just a few metres from the Town Hall square, the Mercat Central is considered one of the masterpieces of Valencian modernism. Its construction began in 1914 with a project by the architects Francesc Guàrdia i Vial and Alexandre Soler i March and was inaugurated in November 1928. It has more than 120 stalls selling all kinds of foodstuffs such as fish, seafood, fruit, spices, wine, meat and sausages, both for domestic consumption and to supply important restaurants in Valencia. It is the largest fresh produce market in Europe. Strolling around its stalls and shopping becomes an exercise in hedonism due to the beauty of its architecture and the tradition and history of the market.
