This felt like a proper market - long areas of stalls, from football flags to key holders to shawls, bags, jewellery, clothes, keyring made from cork and plenty of craft items. As with all markets, bring a closable bag (zip your wallet away), bring water...More

This is Madrid’s big flea market which begins every Sunday at 9am and draws both locals and tourists together in one big, crammed, conga line through stalls selling low quality clothing, knock off goods, cheap souvenirs, and the like. We’ve been to other flea markets...More

Cool flea market in a cool funky neighborhood. Wall to wall people, but still enjoyable. Lots of great small shops, bars and cafes to enjoy. Worth the visit.

Great place where you can find bargains and souvenirs. We loved it! Gets really crowded....and because of that just be careful with your belongings. Also since it is like a “flea market “ on the streets the stores in the area are also open. You...More

We visited the El Rastro market with our teenage daughters. I believe that it is only operating on Sundays. You can easily spend an hour or two here browsing all the stores. We started at about 10am and finished at about 12:00. It was not...More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other

I believe El Rastro has a market everyday with Sunday being the main day where many streets are closed to traffic. There are many second hand and antique shops located in the streets where the markets take place. I am not... More
