Encants Vells

    Attention all bargain hunters, aficionados of household paraphernalia, old records and quality vintage! Els Encants Vells, Barcelona’s oldest flea market, is literally translated as the market of old charms and it has been open for business since the fourteenth century. While the modern Torre Agbar tower provides a gleaming backdrop, the market itself is built on a dusty intersection in the Glories district, far from the tourist center. The mishmash of kitschy mantelpiece ornaments, old posters and comics, odd cutlery, eighties mobiles, rusty gardening tools and cheap polyester underwear is somewhat incongruous, but after sifting through the cacophony of bric-a-brac, it’s possible to find a few real gems – an antique necklace, an art-deco lampshade, 80’s Levi's, or an appealingly battered wooden chair for a future upholstery project. The small pleasures in life often take a bit of energy to unearth, and Els Encants Vells is a dream destination for the creative magpies among you.Show lessRead more
