The Central Market

The Central market of Alicante, with its modernist-inspired elements was built under the supervision of J. Vidal Ramos between 1911 and 1912, on top of the 18th century walls that surrounded Alicante. It has a rectangular floor plan in the style of a basilica, with a circular appendage in the south-west corner topped by a semispherical cupola, “La Rotonda”. One of its two storeys is a half-basement due to the incline of the surrounding streets.

Its main facade is dominated by a huge stairway featuring two protruding figures and has various decorative elements.
