If what you want is glamor and luxury, this is your neighborhood. Streets like the famous Serrano and Jorge Juan are lined with exclusive high-end brand stores as well as top-of-the-line boutiques. Most of these are housed in gorgeous historical buildings, and showcase an interior design with an opulence that matches their inventory. Besides international brands, you’ll also find the most high-tiered logos in Spanish fashion, as well as chains like the Zara Flagship store, which is the largest in the world for the brand. You’ll need deep pockets or a large credit limit to splurge on a shopping spree in this district. However, you’ll be guaranteed great quality and, often, uniqueness. Budget travelers shouldn’t skip this district on their retail ventures, however, as you can sometimes find bargains and sales, and window shopping is an experience in itself.
