The market is housed under a huge mirrored roof that has to be 3/4 storeys high. Around the outside the stalls are set out which allows you to walk around stalls gaining high as you go. The ground floor central area is full of junk and 'antique' sellers. On the first and upper floors there are clothes, bags, electrical, tools... More

One of best open markets I ever visited just a great city design and architecture, not the best shopping but very unique and great view of the Torre Agbar building

Spectacular mirrored roof on a spiral building. The ground floor stalls are mostly 'car boot' type sellers, lots of bric a brac, toys and clothing. As the building spirals, traders are more professional, with lock up storage units. Lots of great bargains, I bought lots of fabrics,€2-€3 per metre, and buttons. Worth going right to the top for the cafes... More

Must go especially at the time when the flea markets are on! Crazy selection of antiques and odd bits and pieces. Definitely worth going just for the experience. Beautiful building too!

When I hear flea market, I expect people who have junk and knick knacks for sale, maybe a few similar items but usually old white elephant type of stuff. This is Definately more of new merchandise market, with fixed prices and very little treasure to find. Not really worth the trip

Barcelona's flea market find nearby Glorias Square shopping center with a huge number of options for entertainment: shopping, various stalls and cafes. Worth a visit.

This was good shopping for us. We found great values among other stuff that probably nobody needs. Haggling is required which is uncomfortable for me. Fantastic fun walking the aisles and trying to figure out how much I could fit in the suitcase. then go to the bar upstairs and have a very cold beer and great tuna. Wonderful memory.

I think a lot of people would be disappointed by Encants. It does have some antiques and old items and you can barter. The problem is most of the market isn't a flea market. It's small professional booths selling various housewares, tools, fabric, electronics, helmets, lighting, and anything else a person needs. So it's not a traditional flea market. Still... More

The flea market is held in an interesting building but I left disappointed. I'm a huge fan of bargain hunting at antique markets but here the prices are a complete ripoff. One guy tried to charge me €10 for a dirty, tacky teacup. Also, many sellers aren't willing to negotiate the price. Amongst antique stalls, the place is full of... More
