Most stores and shopping centres are open all day long, whether they are on the periphery, as if they are in the city centre. But the most traditional shops open from 10:00am to 14:00am and from 16:30pm to 20:30pm. Madrid is divided into several distinct shopping areas: Centro, Salamanca, Chueca, Cuatro Caminos, Princesa y el Rastro.
Centro Area (Sol- Mayor-Arenal)
This area is shaped by the Plaza Mayor, the Gran Via, the Puerta del Sol, the Preciado street, etc. Maybe this is the most convenient area for tourists. Here you can buy the typical Spanish souvenirs. But that’s not all, because around this district you can buy almost everything: from the most traditional handicrafts, ceramics, leather or jewellery, to castanets, guitars or Manila shawls and flamenco dresses. It is also possible to buy the most modern products and clothes in the famous El Corte Inglés department stores.
Salamanca Area (Goya- Serrano)
The smartest shopping district is Salamanca northeast of the centre, around Calle Serrano. Salamanca is a glamorous place to do shop in Madrid. This area is also called “the golden mile”. Top designer names like Yves Saint Lauren, Valentino, Donna Karan, Chanel, Hermenegildo Zenga or Lucchino, are spread around this area. If you can afford to splash out you are guaranteed to find something truly different here.
