After spending a few wonderful hours discovering the magic above in the historical area of Pellourinho, I was disappointed with this flea market, selling the usual tourist trinkets. Keep in mind that I may be biased as I was not shopping for souvenirs, the raison d’être of the whole market, I suppose.
The market is situated in a big building which I found to be hot, drab and rather dirty. I found myself graduating to the few stalls outside the building which were cheaper and more creative in the products they had on offer.
A word of warning... several people have had their credit cards cloned after using the ATM machines at this market, so beware.
The best part of the market for me was the toilet facilities which were clean (see my photos).
