Why locals love it

Wandering around this indoor market is incredible in itself. You will find yourself coveting every single sweetly sanded and beautifully painted piece of furniture. Lying between the area of Colegiales and Palermo Hollywood, there's a real sense of creativity, resourcefulness and vibrancy about this place that draws you in.

Why you should visit it

A market for locals, Las Pulgas will give you a sense of how many in the city make a living from restoring items and furniture that many of us would probably cast aside for the latest Ikea trend. Fortunately, many of the items have been giving a new lease of life and it's only sad that most of it is near impossible to bring back in your luggage!

Special tip

Bring your iPhone - you'll get great shots of store owners sipping 'mate'(local drink)and brightly colored furniture to fill up your instagram feed.
