Ciutadella, Menorca

This is the meat market in Ciutadella, Menorca, the most Catalan of cities. The shops are open to the air and spread out along an arcade of arches of a former Augustinian monastery but the Moorish influence can also clearlyy be seen. The chairs are for customers or friends to sit and chat and it is not uncommon to see butcher going to other shops paying for meat and selling it to their own customers.
