El Jueves

As it’s name suggests, El Jueves, officially an antiques and art market but in reality more of a glorified second hand/car boot sale (without the cars), is held every Thursday morning in Calle Feria, which even takes its name from the market/fair. The eclectic mix of things that you can buy here, from actual antiques to building salvage (looking for a spare doorknob or mantelpiece?), second hand books and games, and much more, make this a fun place to browse around, and also for people watching. The history of the market goes right back to the 13th century, when it was founded to help boost the local economy after the recapture of the city from the Moors, making it one of the oldest still-existing markets in Europe.
