  • Biggest flea market in Madrid! Lots to see, especially in the vintage section. Good to roam about and take pictures!
  • Mad mad place, but great for leather goods and unusually stylish clothes at very reasonable prices. Little bars everywhere for a quick small beer and free tapas to keep you going.
  • A huge flee market with thousands of things. You can find good deals. Definitely a place to visit for tourist if you happen to be in the city on Sunday when most of the places are closed in the morning. Time to 2:30 pm.
  • Awesome and authentic flea market of Madrid. Do not miss it if you're in Madrid onna Sunday... And discover the vibe of the bars of the neighborhood of La Latina!
  • Long stretch of clothes and tourist stalls busy on Sunday. Some interesting vintage and antique stalls. Not great for fashionable clothing. Can be crowded
