contributed by dirkverwoerd

After several attempts of initiating the construction of a new market (1869, 1874 and 1907), it is in 1910 when the Valencia City Hall announced a new national tender for the construction of the new Mercado Central (Central Market). Six different proposals were submitted and it was settled in favour of the the Catalan architects Alejandro Soler March and Francisco Guardia Vial, both of them collaborators of the well-known Catalan architect Luis Domenech Montaner. The Central Market building works started in 1904 and ended in 1928. It is a fantastic example of Art Nouveau architecture. While the building itself was constructed in the beginning of the twentieth century, it displays genuine Valencian style with lots of colour, ceramics and mosaics. Mercado Central is one of the oldest running food markets in Europe. The thing that really jumped out is the unique roof comprised of domes and sloping sections of various heights that allow light to shine through coloured window panels.
