Opportunity islands

The Bellcaire flea market is one of the oldest active markets in Europe. Its location has been moved recently to a new building by Fermín Vázquez. The construction is an open space covered by a golden mirrored pergola with several commercial floors connected by ramps.

Too modern and spectacular for and old and traditional market. That was my first thought when I saw the new location, but after I took a walk, I recognized the usual essence of the ancient market. Maybe because of the wise choice of the building design or maybe because the customers and shopkeepers inertia, but the Bellcaire flea market is as alive as always.

I left the market smiling.
