  • Laughter, noise and screaming. Beautiful corner that can not fail to visit and take to explore the domestic market, foreign posts and not leave without eating the delicious warm squid skewer with something very fresh

  • Bustling atmosphere due to the market that takes place in your environment. Inescapable visit for those who are for the first time in the city.

  • Fontan is a rectangular plaza surrounded by buildings of medium height, set recently, restored and located in a converted. It gets its name from a small fountain located in the center of the square. A street market that combines food, flowers, clothing, antiques and other assorted objects is rampant around it. The side also stands a closed auction dedicated above all to the sale of meat and fish. Currently the square of the Fontan partially occupied by terraces belonging to different bars and restaurants that are established under its arcades, constituting a whole tourist and animated, respecting the traditional. Especially Thursdays and weekends is worth a stroll through the area and end up with a snack or meal on the terrace.
