A number of these iconic buildings have recently been converted into stylish cafes, bars, fashionable shops and art galleries.

Mercado del Puerto is an old port market located by the city’s harbour and has also been refurbished to create one of the city’s most exciting spots. An array of charming shops and mouth-watering steakhouses can be uncovered, while the street entertainers and artists build a real buzz of excitement.
