This was the largest gathering of people I have ever seen in one place!
Not so good if you are claustrophobic.
This is the largest flea market in Europe.
It is divided into sections (food,shoes,clothing).
I have been twice and still haven't seen it all.
You WILL lose your friends...

Madrid´s most traditional items can be bought, sold and enjoyed in the plaza de Cascorro and its surrounding streets
A mixture of modernity and traditionalism, Madrid's flea market sets up for business around the Plaza de Cascorro. Dating back to mediaeval times, El Rastro is one of the oldest markets in Europe, yet also one of the most modern
El Rastro may only take place on Sundays, but flea market spirit pervades this artsy, bohemian section of Madrid.

Large outdoor market on Sunday mornings. You can score lots of cute jewelry here, both new and vintage. Prices aren't bad to begin with, but bring your bargaining skills. You might take home a new favorite cashmere scarf or bright raincoat, or maybe a set of lacy fans to give to friends back home. Just one thing: Be wary of pickpockets. After an hour or two of perusing the wares, sit down to churros and taza de chocolate at one of the many nearby cafes.

El Rastro is a large flea market held every Sunday in Madrid. It's in a barrio south of La Latino metro station. Here you will find everything from clothes, antiques, food to rusty old locks. It is quite an experience and it usually runs from 10-4pm. There are lots of bars around the market where people will congregate for a cervezas & tapas. A word of warning though, be wary of pickpockets.

While in Madrid, you should make it a point to vist the El Rastro. El Rastro is a flea market consisting of thousand of stalls. It should be pointed out that this market in only open on Sundays. Be careful when buying merchandise here. I bought would look to be a great piece of luggage, only to find out that it fell apart even before I got back to the States.

This is a big market that takes a really large area of the city. There are many different goods, from furniture to old LPs, from used military to gadgets and clothes. You could spend a whole day entering the shops or checking the stalls. Only on Sundays!

Like flea markets? Well then why not check out one of the world´s largest? Every Sunday the La Latina and Tirso de Molina neighborhoods are jam-packed with all sorts of stands offering almost every possible item. It´s a scene worth seeing so check it out. The market is open from 9am until roughly 2pm...and afterwards everyone heads to the side streets such as Cava Baja for beers and to fill-up on tapas in the sunshine. Getting there: Take the metro to the La Latina stop and follow the crowd!
