  • Back in time this market was the place where you can buy antiques, weird stuff and clothes from alternative producers. Nowadays almost all the booths have the same made in china stuff. Anyways is an interesting place. Be very careful with pickpocketing because this is one of their favourite spots!!
  • An absolute gem of a place! There's so much to see here & buy too. You can purchase things for cheap here for sure. There's a really nice & calm vibe as well. A must visit place for tourists!
