Valencia Things to Do: 525 reviews and 1,179 photos
The Plaza del Mercado is located west of Plaza de la Reina, and is home to 3 buildings of interest, all constructed in different eras.
The Lonja is a Gothic hall that was built by the city's silk merchants back in the 15th century. If you get the chance stick your head in and check out the silk hall.
Also in the square is the vast Iglesia de los Santos Juanes, which has a small Baroque tower.
Last but not least is the fabulous Mercado Central, built in 1928. It is an huge glass and metal structure that is home to a daily food market. The colourful market is a must see! (more details under my 'Shopping Tips')
