Mercado Barranco (official name is Mercado Lonja del Barranco) is one of the latest must go to places in Seville. The official opening was at the end of 2014 after going through extensive renovation. It has become quite the hangout for local Sevillanos as well as tourists from all over the world. It is located close to the center of the city.
The building itself is a design by Gustave Eiffel. Yes, the same one of the famous Eiffel Tower. Construction of the building began in 1861. It took exactly 22 years to construct. The building itself is a World Heritage Historical Site. It is about 4,000 square feet in size. It houses 20 different vendors selling all kinds of goodies, from tapas, to ice cream to sushi and beef dishes.
