Portales Street and the Market Square are the symbol of a city with an enormous commercial tradition – it was once known as calle de la Herventía (boiling place).
Today, Portales Street – renamed after the arcades built in the 19th century – offers an attractive pedestrian walkway between traditional and modern shops, cafés and restaurants. The
historic commercial character of the city is confirmed by the name of some of the streets of the Old Town, “carnicerias”(butchers), “caballerias” (horses), “herrerias” (ironworks) and “ollerias” (pottery).
