"Crowed but worth it" El Rastro Tip by laura4n8

El Rastro, Madrid: 12 reviews and 18 photos

El Rastro was crowded but fighting the crowds was worth it. I found many treasures here and enjoyed the people watching. But what I liked best was the La Latina area. The architecture was different that the rest of Madrid and was charming!

What to buy: You can nearly everything here! I found great silver jewerly and clothes at El Rastro.

What to pay: Negotiate! Never pay what they offer.

Address: Ribera de Curtidores
Directions: A big area between Metro "Puerta de Toledo", Metro "La Latina" and Metro "Antón Martin".
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
