Seafood Delights at Santiago's Mercado Central
Santiago's colorful Mercado Central, five blocks north of the main square, is a pulsating hub for seafood starting every morning before dawn. The market is lined with brightly lit stalls of fishmongers who bring in a daily offering of just-out-of-sea mollusks, crustaceans, and fish waiting to to wind up on your plate. A historic landmark dating back over 120 years, the interior is reminiscent of a European train station and now home to many seafood eateries (try Richard El Rey del Mariscal over the massive Donde Augusto).
