Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
Responding to the demand of the people to construct a public market in the area, Mercado Colon was opened by the city in 1916. A beautiful modernist building with stained-glass windows and triumphal arches, it was restored in 2003 and has been declared a national monument. Browse the market carts, where handmade goods and foods are sold, as well as the upscale boutique shops. When you need a break, visit one of the many bars or food stalls for coffee or a meal. Take advantage of the free wifi to review your itinerary or check your email, or just bring a book and soak up the atmosphere. On Sundays, enjoy an afternoon concert accompanied by a traditional drink or snack. Put Mercado Colon into our Valencia vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Valencia.
