Mercado Mercat Colon

I visited the beautifully restored Mercat Colon in Valencia in November 2017. This is a market built in 1916 in late Valencia art nouveau style. The market is centrally situated in Valencia in one of the city’s 19th Century expansion areas. The market fell into decay at the end of the 20th Century. The city and some local architects took the initiative to renovate and revitalise the market by adding a basement sales area and an underground parking while preserving the historic market structure.
