Fodor's Review

One of Europe's oldest flea markets, Els Encants has recently found a new home—a stunning, glittering metal canopy that protects the rag-and-bone merchants (and their keen customers) from the elements. Stalls, and a handful of stand-up bars, have become a bit more upmarket, too, although you'll still find plenty of oddities to barter over in the central plaza. Saturday is the busiest day—try going during the week for a more relaxed rummage around this fascinating slice of urban history.
