Menorca, the quiet island, hides secrets making one think that time has stood still. One of these places is the market of Ciutadella, or Mercat des Peix (fish market), as it is called by the inhabitants. It is an obligatory stop for all lovers of small things.

What to see and visit in the Ciutadella.
Menorca in 2 days: things to do and see.

Located in the heart of the old town, on Plaza de la Libertad Square, it is one of Ciutadella's  most charming markets. The small square with its arcades has a central kiosk with fresh fish, surrounded by small stands under its arcades, offering the best of the gardens and courtyards of Menorca. The market is visited both by the local population and tourists, and the flair and the atmosphere of the market will inspire you. 

A meeting point where you can observe the life and activity of this market and buy the freshest products. We advise you to visit the market in the first hours of the morning; it is the best moment to enjoy some of the best experiences: a rich breakfast or some of the delicious tapas in the small bars under the arcades.
