Amazing flea Market in Barcelona


This market has 700 years old, in diferents locations of the city, from the begining the medieval market in the Sant Jaume square until Pla del Palau, next to La Llotja. In 1928 duruing the International exposition, Los encants were moved provisionally to Las Glories square.

As you can see the new building preserves the essence of the old open-air market, as it does not have side walls, but a roof now protects merchants and customers from the weather, which is more convenient compared to the previous location. The Encants have a large influx of people, around 100,000 visits weekly.

Los Encants are paradise for the antique forinture lovers and courious. Walking through the market can last for hours, searching through the haggling stalls and finally taking something in the different snack bars located on the top floor. Although in the end, you do not get what you were looking for, the visit is worth it.
