MARKETS

Several open air markets take place in Vitoria for all the year.  Very popular is the one at Santa Barbara square, just 200 meters away from Ondoloin. It is a fruits, vegetables and handmade sweets market and it is held every thursday and saturday morning. Many stalls sell organic products, but you better ask.

On sundays, at the Plaza de España there’s a  swapping collector goods and second hand objects market (forniture, ornaments, relics). And every first saturday of the month there’s a market all over the old town. Here are the routes you can follow around:
