El Rastro

As any travel guide will tell you, El Rastro is undoubtedly one of the most popular attractions in Madrid. Every Sunday tourists and natives alike flock to the streets of La Latina to browse the one-of-a-kind flea market; among the many stalls one can find jewelry, scarves, clothes, shoes, antiques, leather products, wood workings, and various other handmade treasures. For all its merit, though, the market also has its fair share of pickpockets, many of whom prey on English-speaking tourists. A purse with a zipper or hard-to-reach pockets are easy solutions for an uninhibited shopping experience.
