You'll find one downstairs behind the Pavilion, freshly transplanted from Spain.
Here you'll find many charming examples of Spanish handicrafts that make ideal souvenirs of the Pavilion of Spain.
Dolls, miniature knights-in-armor, handcrafted jewelry, and many delightful objects in leather, straw, wood and clay, all for sale at the colorful booths.
Refresh yourself with a glass of horchata, a sweet almond-flavored beverage that's a favorite in Spain, and churro, a delicious, thin doughnut-like pastry.
Watch the regional folk dances of Spain performed in impromptu concerts in the Plaza.
So step outside into a touch of Spain on market day - it's a miniature Fiesta.
