Rastro de Almuñécar Domingo

The market’s real name is “Mercadillo de Antigüedades de Almuñécar” (Almuñécar Antiques Market).  It is also called by many other names; Almuñécar Rastro, Rastro de Domingo, Sunday Market, or simply the Almuñécar Sunday Market.   Of course, in English, it may be referred to as the Sunday car boot sale or car boot fair.  The entrance is right in the heart of the town, at the Arc de Triomphe Puerta de Almuñécar (Blas Infantes Arches), which is also the main fairground in the month of August.  It lies between the main road (N-340) and the one and only “McDonald’s”.
