  • The old neighborhood of La Latina bulle people that roams one of the most famous markets in Madrid, El Rastro, Sunday days where is dan CITES hundreds of street vendors selling their goods... Clothes, antiques, books, totems, stamps, figurines collection, tools and anything imaginable, distributed in two or three streets of the neighborhood, surrounded by bars, vermuterias, and tapas to take a break in the tour. PIN daily Sunday.

  • most of the banks is similar to any other market, though the neighborhood where it is held, the amount of people and some most typical banks make it very pleasant and interesting. better to go around at 10, because at 11 fills up too much already.

  • A fun market to check out. Decent prices. Had a great afternoon there, afterwards went out for tapas in one of the local restaurants. Highly recommended.
  • A nice market with fine amount of intresting things to see and buy.
  • Really long flea market. Only on Sundays. Pretty interesting though so do visit if you can catch it.
  • hay que ir
  • Really nothing special: lots of cheap merchandise, nothing really authentic or quaint, even though the large crowd made it very hard for us to take a very thorough look.
