This market is a must do on Sundays in Madrid. 10am to 3pm. The streets are buzzing! Start at the top (at the Plaza) and finish at the bottom as it’s a steep climb back up! You’ll find stalls selling t-shirts, jewellery, CDs, clothes, fur...More

The antiques and collectibles were very interesting on the side streets. Otherwise just another European street market.

Huge market but it is so packed that you can't step out of the throng of people moving like fish on the tide. Not what i had hoped for visiting the oldest area in Madrid but hey one off the list

This is sooooo much fun and completely worth dealing with the crowds. Tourist and Madrid local all meshed in one spot. Really really fun. Great finds in the stalls. A real adventure.

Such a waste of time – most stalls looked like they consisted completely of the unwanted contents of the owner’s wardrobe. We travelled from the UK (not specifically for the market) and so were expecting a good market, much like we have come to expect...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
