Teatro del Mercado, Zaragoza

On the Plaza Santo Domingo there is a very small theater with an unusual name that can be translated as" theater in the market " (Teatro del Mercado on the map). In fact, everything is quite simple - tetr occupies a building that used to house a fish market. The shopping pavilion designed by Miguel Angel Navarro was built in 1929 in the neo-Renaissance style. The architect was inspired by the Aragonese palaces with arched galleries and carved wooden cornices, and in the appearance of the building you can guess the features of the exchange of Zaragoza (Lonja de Zaragoza).
