Le Marché Colon Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Le Marché Colon

A type of local Covent Garden, the Mercado de Colón was once a market full of life packed with colourful fruits and vegetables, just like the Mercado Central. Having undergone a major overhaul in 2003, it is now a tourist spot boasting numerous boutiques, bars and restaurants, as well as a few souvenir stands. Nevertheless, visitors can still admire its impressive Art Nouveau architecture from the turn of the 20th century, designed by a student of Gaudí. While concerts take place here every Sunday, this spot is particularly festive in December, playing host to a Christmas market that features a huge nativity scene and a Christmas tree. El Alto de Colon, a gastronomic restaurant, is located on one of the upper floors. In the basement you'll find an oyster bar, the Bamboo, restaurants serving tapas and burgers, a fruit and vegetable seller, and the Manglano, a highly acclaimed gourmet delicatessen that displays its tasty products for all to see, from its hams hung on hooks to its typical sweet treats.
