    Great atmosphere, lots of variety to choose fresh products. Full of stalls to buy fruit, meat, fish, pickles. It has 5 jobs where you can enjoy many typical dishes, all fish, seafood and vegetables. Despite the dates in which we came they served very fast. Highly recommended knives by price and taste.

  • All kinds of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and meat. We picked up some delicious fruit juices to drink while we browsed. The nut mixes are very good as well. You should also look up to see the beautiful windows. It was pretty crowded on the Friday we visited but totally worth visiting.
  • Amazing place! Fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, sea fruits, spices - anything you want. :) Moreover there is some tables you can eat just right there! :)
  • We had seafood there. It's very nice, freshly cooked. Very busy place, need go early to get table on the street. They close at 2.30p.m.
  • Pretty touristy, as you'd expect, but you can still pick up some nice food. Can get very busy at peak times. Note: closes at 2pm.
  • You feel a bit lost between checking all the options available and not being in the way of others. Couldn't stop for a bite, but wish I had! Good price for fruits and olives.

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
