  • It will be that we happened in August, it will be that the market remains open until 3 p.m. on that day, fact is that arrived around noon we did not see who as a market, yet we walked it 2 times in doubt of having missed something. Surely we arrived on the wrong day however nothing exceptional from what we saw. I hope to come back on other occasions to see him in better situations.

  • Palermo's Ballar market, unfortunately I went late so it was a bit off, but still very nice. From the stories I've heard if you go in the morning there is much more movement and the mercataries sing songs and screams to attract the attention of those who buy. The market is distributed in the streets of the area. Very nice to visit absolutely.
