Madrid Shopping Guide

Like in many European cities, you’ll have to look hard to find sloppy dressers in Madrid. Whether it’s brand-name fashion or chic vintage, people here care about looking good and expressing their personality. This makes the Spanish capital a great place to dive deep into a retail therapy experience. From local products to internationally acclaimed names, from luxury to budget brands, from that item you’ve wanted for months to the stuff you never knew you needed, Madrid’s extensive shopping has something for everyone.


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.

Best souvenir shop in Madrid!
#17 of 379 Shopping in Madrid
Comparing Mercado de San Anton vs. Mercado San Miguel, San Miguel is where the tourists go, and San Anton is where the chefs and locals go.
Centrally located in the old part of Madrid, it's great place to take a break or have a meal from the shopping to be done on the Gran Via street.
