11.- Old Barranco district market.
This former Barranco District Market was designed by architect Ricardo J. Malachowski and construction performed by the engineer Luis Razzeto in 1924. It has been declared a historical monument and is a valuable example of Barranco's early twentieth century architecture, with eclectic style with elements of early Art Deco. After suffering constant deterioration suffered from the lack of maintenance, which threatened its stability, was refurbished in 2007 and in it currently runs the Metro supermarket.
