Pamplona, like many Spanish cities, has a number of excellent municipal markets, flea markets and street markets. They can be great places to pick up a secondhand bargain, or the freshest local food. Here’s our pick of the best.

1. Mercado de Santo Domingo


The Mercado de Santo Domingo is the oldest and most important market in the city. There has been a market on this site since 1769, but the current building was erected in 1876. It has since undergone many renovations and remodels, but still maintains its original style. Today, it features 45 stalls specialising in everything from meats and fish to eggs and flowers. It is open from Monday to Saturday 8 am – 2 pm, closing at 4.30 pm on Fridays.

As well as the standard meat, fruit and vegetable stands, it has one dedicated entirely to olives, one to cheese and one to bread and pasta. It is open Monday to Friday 9 am – 2 pm and 5 pm – 8 pm. It also opens on Saturdays 9 am – 2 pm.
