Where to park in Rastro

The Rastro of Madrid is found in the middle of the center of the city in the well-known La Latina neighborhood. This open-air market occupies the Ribera de Curtidores every Sunday.

Parking in the vicinity of the madrileño market is very difficult, especially on days that the stalls are put together. So, if you are thinking of coming one Sunday morning to get to know such a characteristic place, we recommend that you reserve a parking spot with Parclick.

The traffic in the center of Madrid can be pretty dense. The Madrid City Council exercises a certain control over the contaminating emissions by limiting traffic circulation or restricting traffic in some zones (Residential Priority Areas – APR) and during some times. Also, on important days when there is a habitual influx of tourists, the traffic in the capital can be heavy and complicated.

Another important factor is that Madrid has established zones of regulated parking that limit the time a vehicle can park. It should be noted that the green zone is for residents and the blue zone is destined for the rest of the vehicles. In both areas, the intent is to guarantee the mobility of the cars, which is why you can only park for a certain amount of time and you have to pay the corresponding ticket.

A visit to the Rastro of Madrid is practically mandatory, but we recommend that you reserve a parking space beforehand with Parclick. On the Parclick website, you will see the monitored car parks near the Rastro.

History of the Rastro of Madrid

A small market in the Ribera de Curtidores

The Rastro of Madrid tells a story of over 400 years. The open-air market is located in La Latina, a well-known neighborhood in the historic center of the capital. In its stalls, you can buy all types of day-to-day objects as well as diverse curiosities.

The entire market stretches the length and width of the Ribera de Curtidores, a feat accomplished by the hundreds of stalls selling objects, clothes, antiques, etc. The Rastro is an obligatory visit to enjoy a day in the city and after you can go to one of the bars and terraces in the area to complete an ideal trip.

The streets bordering the market are also filled with different shops that sell specialized products. For example, there is a street known as Calle de los Pájeros where street vendors previously sold animals. Today in this street, there are a few stores that sell specialized animals. In the Calle de los Pintores, one could buy works of art and specialized artistic materials. Additionally, on the Calle del Carnero and Calle de Carlos Arniches streets, it is possible to buy all types of secondhand books and magazines.

If you are going to get to know the Rastro of Madrid one Sunday, plan your trip ahead of time and reserve your parking space with Parclick now to fully enjoy the experience.

Parking near the Rastro

Every Sunday and public holiday, the Rastro starts from 9:00 (they start to set up from 8:00) until 15:00, when they start to collect everything. But, before you take the car and drive to the Rastro, you have to take into account the presence of Madrid Central. Exactly, as you could imagine, the Rastro is in Madrid Central and you won't be able to park on the street, unless you have a permit or an invitation. So, if you are going to visit the Rastro in Madrid on a Sunday, plan ahead and book your parking space now with Parclick, to fully enjoy the experience. The car park manager will send your number plate number to the Madrid City Council so that you won't be fined and you can drive to the car park with peace of mind. There is a car park right where the Embajadores-Rastro street market is set up, but they have to close during Rastro hours because you can't get in and out of it, so I advise you to arrive or leave after this one or choose any other car park in the surrounding area.

Parking on the street, outside Madrid Central

After leaving Madrid Central, you can park in the streets near the Rastro. What's more, the good thing is that the Rastro is on Sundays and public holidays, so you can park for free in Madrid.

The streets closest to the Rastro and outside Madrid Central are:

  • Calle de Toledo: but be careful, if you get to Ronda de Toledo, you can turn around at the roundabout but if you go straight on, that's already Madrid Central.
  • Paseo de los Pontones: the same goes for this street. If you go as far as Ronda de Toledo, you will reach the limit of Madrid Central. You can turn around at the roundabout, but be careful.
  • Paseo de las Acacias: you can turn around at the Embajadores roundabout.
  • Avenida del Manzanares: this is in the Madrid Río area, but you won't enter Madrid Central by mistake. It is further away, about 20 minutes on foot, but if you go in good weather, it will be a short walk.

And, well, all the streets adjoining these. The important thing to know is that the limit of Madrid Central is in the streets Ronda de Segovia, Ronda de Toledo and Ronda de Atocha.

My vehicle’s license plate was not automatically read when I entered the parking garage. I had to get a normal ticket and take it to the office to be verified. And when I left, again I had to return to the office to have the ticket authorized. Very bad!


Muy bien comunicado, amplio, limpio y seguro.


Buen parking, plazas amplias y el personal resuelve cualquier problema.


Todo muy correcto


J'ai beaucoup aimé l'accueil, les véhicules sont gardés en permanence par un personnel aimable. De plus, j'ai pû y garer mon fourgon (transit custom H1L2)sans difficultés.Ruelles un peu petites pour y accéder, mais pas vraiment de circulation dans la zone


Tienes que esperar cola si hay vehículos sin reserva delante esperando a que salga otro del parking para poder entrar y aunque tú si tengas reserva, fueron 15 min., no me parece correcto.
