Encants Vells Market
The origins of the Mercat dels Encants Vells date back to the 14th century, making it one of Europe's oldest markets. It covers an area of 15,000 square metres, where some 500 stallholders hawk their wares. It is visited by around 100,000 people a week, eager to find bargains amongst its antique furniture, second-hand clothes, books and old records, or collectors' items. The market is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from nine in the morning to six in the evening.
