Located seconds from Madrid’s grand Plaza Mayor, this indoor market first opened its doors in 1916.

One of the city’s oldest markets, the building was falling into disrepair until it was refurbished in 2009, when it proceeded to become one of the city’s most popular foodie hot spots.

Packed with stalls serving anything from oysters and wine to fish, bread, fruits and cheese, tourists and locals flock here to soak up the buzzy atmosphere and devour plates of food, which can be eaten on tables or the floor in the middle of the marketplace.
