The Rastro takes place every first Sunday morning of the month during the winter (in the summer, it's on Saturday evening). If the weather is bad, the Rastro will be cancelled, but this Sunday looks OK, so it will go ahead.
The Rastro begins on the Plazuela and runs along Juan Relinque to the junction with Santisimo. The official start is 11 a.m., but you'll see stalls appearing any time after 10 a.m. Similarly, though the official closing time is 3.00 p.m., many stallholders start packing up at around 2 p.m.
The Rastro is billed as a 'flea market', and there are plenty of stalls selling used clothing or bric-a-brac. You'll also find jewellery, art and as with all flea markets, a range of indefinable objects. There are no new clothing stalls.
But the Rastro is more than just a row of stalls. It's a chance to meet friends, share a leisurely coffee and have a look at the shops, many of which will be open for the morning. Cafes and restaurants will also be open, so it's a good way to work up an appetite for lunch.
