Everybody loves a good market, the sights and sounds, the hustle and bustle, the thrill of bargaining, the objects you would never usually find... Below the futuristic skyscrapers and safely out of tourist-ville lies a market full of hidden treasures. If you're up for an authentic local experience and feeling like a Barcelonian, then this your tour!
"Los encantes", "the Old Charm Market" is fascinating & bizarre All items are sold here, both old and new. You can get power tools next to antiques next to cosmetics, and you do come across some gems, like an amazing 1920's turban style, vintage poster , comics, nice handicrafts, or even an Art Deco ring!
Bargaining is fun, and I'll show you how to do it in Spanish. I'll also show you what & where the best vendors are! We'll meet at Jean Nouvel's skyscraper, the "Agbar tower", for a futuristic snapshots session and have a walk to the chaotic flea market.
