Shopping In Madrid

Updated on March 12, 2013

If you have one or two days off, which you can devote to shopping, it is better to go to a village in the outskirts of Madrid. The most famous and publicized is, of course, Las Rozas Village, which can be reached in 45 minutes by bus # 625 and 628, departing from Metro Moncloa. However, according to some Real Madrid, it's not the most curious village: the choice there is too small, even a lot of brands, but things are not the most interesting. Locals love to be in Factory in Getafe, which can be reached by bus 427 from metro station Villaverde Bajo-Cruce, and Factory San Sebastian de los Reyes - it is a bus 161, 166, 181 and 103 of the area of Castilla. In these villages brands varied, and the range of things richer.

Shopping centers

Fans of huge shopping centers such as Moscow's Mega will certainly find something similar in Madrid. We recommend visiting the Xanadu, which is a giant shopping mall. It is not far away from the center and can easily be reached from the station Principe Pío on buses 528, 534 and 539. It is not only shops, but also theater, carting Fórmula Cero with a 450-meter track, which can accelerate to 70 miles per hour, with 14 bowling lanes, a mini-golf course, and even the only one in Spain's indoor ski slope area 18 thousand square meters with two tracks - for beginners and advanced skiers. Another favorite local resident’s shopping center - La Vaguada. You can get there from Metro Barrio del Pilar y Herrera oria Peñagrande within walking distance.

If you make a transfer in an airport of Madrid, and you have some time, which is not enough to explore the city, take a trip by taxi to the shopping mall Plenilunio, which is next to Barajas.


And, of course, visit the most famous clothing market Madrid Rastro, which opens at 9 am every Sunday south of La Latina metro station and captures most of the quarter in the range of streets Toledo, Embajadores and Ronda de Toledo. It exists in this place almost since the Middle Ages. One part offers antique crockery and cutlery in the other - old magazines and records, and then suddenly you get to the "Thai" market selling new bags and scarves from Thailand, cheap clothing from India, the author's amusing jewelry, and finally already loaded the bags with all vital junk, find yourself in the poultry market.
