A few meters away is the beautiful Atarazanas Market, originally built as a Nasrid shipyard in the fourteenth century, when the Mediterranean bathed its southern limit. After falling into disuse, it was used as a barracks and a military hospital, until at the end of the 19th century it was remodeled to accommodate a market. Renovated just a few years ago, today it is one of the most interesting buildings in Malaga.
On the one hand, by its exterior, which still offers an image of the old Arab building thanks to its access door as well as a beautiful stained glass window -in its rear façade- which represents some of the monuments of Malaga.
And, on the other, by its interior, which houses many fruit, vegetable, meat and fish stalls, which serve to know the wide variety of products that are born in the different regions of Malaga, from the vegetables of the Guadalhorce Valley to the subtropical vegetables of La Axarquía. There are also several stands converted into small bars where you can taste Málaga’s gastronomy in an informal way.
