function commercial space, market, shopping centre
contributed by Naomi

This new market hall, now more shopping mall than food, replaced an old market place which was originally built in 1884. José de Goicoa designed this original building, inspired by a French example, the Les Halles in Bayona. The old market was built at the point when the city of Donostia started to grow beyond its walls, and the market has subsequently expanded since. Eventually the old market place with fresh fish, fruit and meat, has grown to be part of the collective historic memory and the social structure of the city. Because the need for commercial space in the city centre grew, and the consumer behaviour changed, the city decided to replace the old market. This decision was a controversial one. Many inhabitants dispute the necessity of another new and mediocre shopping mall, and argument that the city, known for it's strong gastronomic tradition should not have replaced the fresh food-stalls with DVD's and clothing.
