Madrid is a formidable city for shopping. All is concentrated in the Centro..
In the center of Madrid all the famous brands are present. We, however, preferred to highlight the young creators or the typically Spanish brands for woman fashion and man fashion, as well as the most new or surprising stores and concept stores. We did not forget the gourmets either or the department stores because they usefully concentrate oll the brands, the design shops because it is, like in Barcelona an amusing city from this point of view and finally the craft industry.
You’ll find in this Madrid Shopping Guide ideas of presents at any prices, from very expensive to really inexpensive and fun..
