El Rastro, Madrid's Sunday flea market.

While the market is large and packed with people, do not expect to see a market dominated by antiques. Much of the Rastro's wares are imported items, leather purses, and textiles; used goods are also plentiful.

Open during a time when many Madrid sights are closed, El Rastro can be a good place to spend your Sunday morning. Given the crowds, El Rastro is also a good place to watch you pockets. (read Safe Travel )
