This is a busy market with a buzzing atmosphere. The main street is rather touristy and the busiest part. Recommend turning off the main street to explore down some side streets where you'll find less touristy things for sale and more unusual and interesting items,...More

Not bad but if you don't like crowds don't go. Live music playing in various locations which was cool. Did find some good deals but it does get packed very fast so go early am.

All the guides say this is a must. It's not. Firstly, it's just like any other street market anywhere. T-shirts, hats, jewellery, souvenirs - nothing special or different. But the biggest problem is the sheer number of people. Madrid is busy but this was another...More

Was at Madrid's El Rastro flea market last week; sorry for what it has become. Like many other supposed flea markets around the planet, this has become a market where purveyors sell new things as old, price items too high, and really don't care about...More

We had read that it was the largest and oldest flea market in the world. But there was nothing historic about this. Yes it was huge, blocks and blocks of vendors, but most selling similar cheap merchandise. Hoards of people. My husband could have done...More

Very near Plaza Mayor, at walking distance. It is crowded of course. Full of stalls of clothes, bags, bijou, craft, scarves, antiquities and all you can imagine. If you go by metro, get off at station La Latina and walk.

We decided to skip the flea market day and go on saturday. Nice place to stroll and all of the shops were open. Plenty of antiques and cafes.

The Rastro is an open air market on Sundays. Not far from the Royal House and Cathedral. The booths are filled with clothes and crafts stuff. Some food. But it is a pleasant way to mix with local people and walk amongst some lovely lanes...More

Was expecting a “celebrated flea market”, so wS disappointed to find only modern “tat” which I could buy at any cheap market stall back home. It was very busy, as we expected, so the atmosphere was fun, especially if you found a seat in a...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
