Mercato Il Capo


Sicily for free Sicilian Markets Markets

Il Capo is, together with the market Ballarò, a market with a soul, the most authentic market of the city, that will hopefully not face the end of the Vucciria market, which has become far too touristic. Il Capo is ideal for those who want to discover a true market in Palermo. A visit is also recommended because it is easily accessible from the Via Maqueda. Already the entrance is a gift for the eye of the visitor, right behind the Porta Carini there is a series of stalls selling excellent fish and meat. The exposure of the goods and the cries of fishmongers and fruit vendors will amaze you. Your stroll continues through exhibitions of spices and classic street food.
Don't miss the two little churches, insignificant from the outside but inside richly decorated.

Il Capo is best to be visited in the company of a local or a guide!


Via Porta Carini, Palermo, 90138
