The old part of town still preserves its enchantment of a fisher´s town where, on the contrary, the new part of town has a large range variety of shops and shopping centre’s. Amongst the shopping centers we can find El Campanario where you can enjoy lovely breath-taking views of the nearby surroundings from its tower or admire the typical canarian architecture.
Every Thursday and Sunday from 10 till 2pm ,in El Campanario shopping centre, you can visit one of the most motley and multiracial markets with crafts and different creations from all around the world.
As well, at the same time on Saturdays, there´s also a second hand article market where you can find loads of products ranging from books, shoes, clothes, toys, jewellery and much more! There´s also a few “Recycle” stands where, for example, you can find necklaces made from dry orange skin or bags made out from vinyl records. While going around the market you can enjoy live music from local musicians.
