  • This is a cool market, but depends on what are you searching for. There are souvenirs, clothes, jewellery, bags, some kitchen accessories... A lot of stands contain the same objects for selling, so...

  • Really cool flea market with everything you could want, a great place for souvenirs, it is really big and sprawling. We stayed there for over 3 hours. You can bargain too. Just feign not interested and walk away, the price should drop by 20-40%, depends on how good you are at bargaining. This heavy solid brass start at 40 Euro, bought it for 25 Euro.
  • BIGGEST FLEA MARKET! Amazing everything you need for clothing, home, great atmosphere, everyone smiling happy! Take metro to La Latina Station, just walk about 30 blocks of anything you want, prices very reasonable...A MUST IF IN MADRID ON A SUNDAY! Very safe too.
