The historic shopping area is home to El Rastro, the most popular open air flea market in Madrid. The shopping area also includes standard shops and boutiques. Some of the major attractions along El Rastro include the beautiful Plaza de Cascorro and Plaza Mayor, both which are part of the historical section of the city.
Along the main street as well as the side streets of El Rastro there are apartments and living quarters, but also a very good assortment of antique shops and second hand stores. While most shopkeepers are open to bargaining, some also have set prices similar to standard retail shopping outlets.
