Great fun visiting the indoor market, three is so much to look at, so much to taste ad great music. It can get very busy, so with little kids we go early! Don't miss all the art and statues round the back.

Definitely worth a trip. A bustling, interesting market. Lots of stalls selling food, clothing, leather stuff & jewellery. Outside of the indoor area there are other stalls selling metal sculptures made out of recycled car parts. They really are incredible.
