Was looking to find a flea market. Went to a few other places, but this is the best place to find a wide range of antiques, clothes, junk, etc. Found a couple great pieces that I was very happy about. There is so much stuff you need to stay at least a couple hours.

The market is housed under a huge mirrored roof that has to be 3/4 storeys high. Around the outside the stalls are set out which allows you to walk around stalls gaining high as you go. The ground floor central area is full of junk and 'antique' sellers. On the first and upper floors there are clothes, bags, electrical, tools... More

One of best open markets I ever visited just a great city design and architecture, not the best shopping but very unique and great view of the Torre Agbar building

Spectacular mirrored roof on a spiral building. The ground floor stalls are mostly 'car boot' type sellers, lots of bric a brac, toys and clothing. As the building spirals, traders are more professional, with lock up storage units. Lots of great bargains, I bought lots of fabrics,€2-€3 per metre, and buttons. Worth going right to the top for the cafes... More

Must go especially at the time when the flea markets are on! Crazy selection of antiques and odd bits and pieces. Definitely worth going just for the experience. Beautiful building too!

When I hear flea market, I expect people who have junk and knick knacks for sale, maybe a few similar items but usually old white elephant type of stuff. This is Definately more of new merchandise market, with fixed prices and very little treasure to find. Not really worth the trip

This was good shopping for us. We found great values among other stuff that probably nobody needs. Haggling is required which is uncomfortable for me. Fantastic fun walking the aisles and trying to figure out how much I could fit in the suitcase. then go to the bar upstairs and have a very cold beer and great tuna. Wonderful memory.

I think a lot of people would be disappointed by Encants. It does have some antiques and old items and you can barter. The problem is most of the market isn't a flea market. It's small professional booths selling various housewares, tools, fabric, electronics, helmets, lighting, and anything else a person needs. So it's not a traditional flea market. Still... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
