San Miguel Market was built at the beginning of 20th century, following the style of the markets in Paris with big glass and iron buildings, Eiffel Style. During the Civil War the market was closed but fortunately not destroyed.
In 1951 it reopened selling mostly food products from the areas surrounding Madrid but during the last years of the 20th century the activity of the market decreased and in 2003 the building was bought by a group, El Gastronomo de San Miguel, and the restructuring began.
