History of Mercado central at Alicante
This eclectic style building decorated with Valencian Modernist decorations, was built in 1921 on the plans of Enrique Sánchez Sedeño by Juan Vidal Ramos . Its shape is roughly rectangular, but due to the irregularity of the block, a rotunda and an additional part were added on Calle del Capitán Segarra. The main entrance, preceded by a grand staircase, is located on Alfonso el Sabio Avenue; the secondary entrance is opposite on Plaza 25 de Mayo. The market has a semi underground floor and a ground floor; the upper room is organized in 3 naves, in the style of a basilica, in which are aligned the outlets. Regardless of the architecture, what is important is the pleasure of seeing resplendent fruits and vegetables often produced in the nearby huertas, the seafood, and above all to enjoy the unforgettable atmosphere of a Spanish market.
