Overview

Leaving the Plaza de Ayuntamiento and heading along Avenida Maria Cristina, you will run into the popular "Pla├ža del Mercat". In olden days shoppers, merchants, passers-by and all kinds of people used to come together here, creating a beehive of activity. In this still bustling plaza you will find three of the must-visit buildings in the city: The Mercat Central (Central Market), a living example of the Modernist movement from the turn of the century, the Lonja de Seda (Silk Market), an exemplary gothic building declared Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO, and the Iglesia de Santos Juanes, a beautiful gothic-style church built in 1368.
