The old Sant Antoni market


Better known around here as the mercat de Sant Antoni, X shaped, it was built between 1879 and 1882. It is closed now, the city replaced it by a 2 temporary plastic hangars nearby. The old market is supposed to be undergoing restoration, although I haven’t seen anyone working in those grandiose ruins in the last 4 or 5 years. Temporary things tend to last long here.
