Mercado de Motores, the market with a thousand and one finds

You must go to the Mercado de Motores, in the Delicias district, which will lead you to good memories of your stay in Madrid.

On the second weekend of every month, make sure you go to this unique little market, Mercado de Motores, and wander among wagons and locomotives of the 19th century. Installed in the former Delicias train station, more than 200 craftsmen, designers, and antique dealers of all kinds come to present their productions or show off their latest finds. Unearth your treasure in the middle of old bicycles, retro furniture, vintage clothes and second-hand objects.

Various food stands offer a number of tapas for a break while listening to local musicians play their Catalan repertoire live in an atmosphere as festive as it is welcoming. A one-of-a-kind place that will make you want to stay all day (and indeed the market is open until 10 p.m.). Since you are not far away, make a detour to the Railway Museum, a place dear to model collectors, where the most curious can learn everything about the world of railways.
