Madrid


The Rastro is one of the symbols of the city. Every Sunday and bank holiday, from 9.00 to 14.00 hours, the streets around the Ribera de Curtidores and leading to the Ronda de Toledo receive hundreds of visitors all looking through stalls of second-hand records and CDs, books and clothes, antiques, coins, furniture and craft work. There are other specialist street markets in the capital, such as the market in the Plaza Mayor, which specialises in stamps, or the crafts market in the Plaza de las Comendadoras.
