Bag a bargain plus a taste of Spanish food and culture at Benidorm's unique antique market

So many of us love bargain-hunting. But few first-timers to Benidorm are aware that, in addition to the marvelous seaside attractions that make the resort one of Europe’s key holiday destinations, the city has a large antique emporium and flea market on its outskirts called El Cisne where you’ll find treasures galore.

One lover of the market summed up El Cisne well when they wrote on Tripadvisor:

A worthy trip out around the market with a multitude of secondhand and vintage items for sale. Prices vary but a great chance to enjoy Spanish hospitality with good food at great prices and entertainment. A great way to unwind from the beach and bars and get a taste of real Spain. Buses are easy to use and stop right outside.

Another enthusiast wrote:

Great second-hand and antique market selling hundreds of different types of goods. The market is held every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday with free entertainment on Sunday lunchtimes. You will find antiques, clothes, electrical goods, pottery, china and some real junk too. It’s a great market, particularly on Sundays when it is really busy. You can wander around the stalls, grab a bite to eat and maybe pick up a real bargain.

El Cisne is on the road to Alfas de Pi, and the best way to reach it, if you rely on public transport, is the No 10 bus.

Once there, according to this site (in Spanish), you will find a large antiques emporium. The adjacent market area has around 80 stalls where you can discover items ranging from used military equipment to decorative china plates, jewellery, and books in several languages.

A recreational area has several cafeterias that can accommodate more than 700 people. These offer a variety of entertainment, including flamenco shows.
