Ex Cuartel Market

Another historic public market for clothing and some handicrafts.

For the past half century, a onetime infantry barracks from the 19th century has been a beloved public clothing market, and is worth a visit of your own to see the locals in action, browsing the footwear and garments. However, there are also some items of handicrafts here and there, one particularly popular example of which are colourful handmade hammocks. You'll find the market between Calle 1 Oriente and Calle Delgado at 8 Avenida Sur.
