The covered market in the city centre
In the covered market, with its dozens of merchants inside and outside, you will be spoilt for choice! Will you choose prawns, a lobster, a sole or two? All of them –of course!– as fresh as can be. Or are you more inclined towards a plump free-range chicken and traditional pâté? Exotic vegetables or organic potatoes, grown just a few miles away? And how could you possibly resist these fruits… big sweet melons, heaps of shiny red cherries and mouth-watering strawberries are just some of the temptations that lie in store.
While you’re there, have a look at the architecture of the covered market. It dates back to the 1950’s, when the city was rebuilt after the war. Its elegantly curved high ceiling, made of concrete like the whole building, is designed both to allow daylight into the market and to provide shadow for the stalls.
