Sprawling flea market with clothes, leather, belts, knockoff football jersey, and trinkets. Gets very crowded. Nothing special to see. Interesting glimpse of locals and tourists. No food stalls, but plenty of bodegas and cafes. Good police presence, but I would be very careful with my...More

This flea market opens only on Sundays and public holidays. Nearest underground stations are La Latina and Tirso de Molina. We arrived at 930am, some stalls already started business. The crowd picks up pretty quickly. There are a variety of clothings, bags, arty and handicrafts,...More

Good place to get your souvenirs as most stalls have the same stuff but a lot cheap than in the tourist areas, this would stretch your budget. A Few stalls sell used items like your larger flea Markets, this covers a lot of ground and...More

This flea market dates back to the middle ages. Fascinating collection of antique shops line the streets with clothes and jewellery on sale on the centre stalls. Very busy so go early. Sundays only I believe.

Great to drift round. Not sure that any but the most dedicated would actually buy, but all sorts of stuff (clothes, leather etc) to buy. Great atmosphere and a nice walk to do.

It's is the biggest flea market in Spain (was also claim as the second biggest flea market in Europe) so it doesn't matter if you're a kind of person who like this style of shopping or not. You must come to explore it!!! Me personally...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
