There are two main fish markets in town. This photo was shot at the older of the two, on the harbour. (Out of my header photo to the right.) It is held in an uncovered courtyard. Once you leave the street and enter the market, it's as if you have entered another wetter noisier world.
The first thing you notice is the smell...of fish, of course. Then you hear the 15 or more fishmongers, who have tables set up around the edges and in the middle of the courtyard. All of them call out to you (at full shouting volume) as you pass by their table of wares, telling you their prices, and immediately offering you a better deal if you continue past.
The fish are displayed on metal tables, divided by type. All the eels curled around each other, all the cod in another slippery pile, all the monkfish looking up at you with both eyes: each group with a handwritten card indicating the price per kilo on top.
More pictures to come in the following days...
