You will be amazed by the sea lions, seagulls and pelicans and you will learn about people related to artisanal fishing. From this point we will go by bus to the Cardonal Market, the most chaotic sector of the city, where you can soak up the local spirit through the colors, aromas and sounds of the place. We will insert ourselves into the depths of the market to show you the traditional kitchens with the smell of the port and the taste of the sea. Then we will cross the entire city in a traditional electric trolleybus to reach the Mercado Puerto, where you can visit the Arts and Crafts Fair. Finally you will visit the Plaza Echaurren and the Ascensor Cordillera, to finish in the historic Plaza Sotomayor.
