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.
The back façade is located in Plaza 25 de Mayo, so called in honour of the 300 victims of the bombardment of the Central Market during the Spanish Civil War, on 25 May 1938.
This monument is located in the centre of Alicante city and offers a great variety of gastronomic products.
