Great place where you can find bargains and souvenirs. We loved it! Gets really crowded....and because of that just be careful with your belongings. Also since it is like a “flea market “ on the streets the stores in the area are also open. You...More

Super busy (as expected) but the stuff on offer really isn’t worth the hassle of the heaving crowds.

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
