  • You have really anything and everything, antiques, clothing, bars, flowers. You can enjoy strolling through on Sunday and watch. Cozy.

  • I love the markets and that I loved. Well structured, there are stalls of all kinds and souvenir prices are slightly lower than those of stores.

  • On Sunday many people, most spills out onto the streets of La Latina for El Rastro. Different stalls display their own things. Personally many cinesate and trinkets of low quality. Don't miss the old antique shops as soon as I finish the street market; You can find wonders in a few euros.

  • Famous market in the centre of the city, get there early as it fills up very quickly. Lot of places to eat around the area. Haggle and you will get the bargains.
  • The typical place to go in Madrid on a Sunday. The typical place to go when go are looking for something unusual, whether it's first or second hand. And a great place to see a great bands that plays there every Sunday: Jingle Django! They are awesome!
  • A great way to spend a Sunday! Keep your wallet zipped into your jacket, though! It's crowded there!
  • Great clothes and other items at reasonable prices. Obviously crowded but still a fun way to spend your Sunday.
  • Authentic Madrileño experience. Huge flea market where you can buy antiques and knick -knacks. Not to mention the multitude of bats selling grilled sardines, tapas and the traditional Madrid sandwich with calamari rings. As every person will tell you- beware of pickpockets and verify any "new" electronics like chargers that you might buy
