THE MOST AUTHENTIC PLACES
Shopping at the most authentic stores in Madrid, with an expert assistant
We all like to fit in some shopping when we’re out on a trip. We want something that will remind us of those marvelous days in Madrid, but often we don’t have the local knowledge to find the right places to go.
You won’t have this problem. You’ll have an expert at your service, who will take you round the traditional shops and markets just oozing that genuine atmosphere.
You can start off in the Chueca neighborhood, world famous for its happy, unprejudiced attitude towards life, with people who will make you feel at home.
Then you can visit the illustrious districts of Las Letras, famous for its 17th-C literary atmosphere, during the Spanish Golden Age, with inhabitants like Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Quevedo and lots of
artists. This is the most artistic district in the city, full of world-famous art galleries, just around the corner from the Atocha station, Calle Cruz, Carrera de San Jerónimo and Paseo del Prado.
Everything is close at hand: art spaces, historic bookstores, legendary sites, literary milestones, artistic monuments, and much more.
And to cap it off, you can try a delicious “chocolate con churros”, one of the more traditional customs of Spanish gastronomy, as an afternoon snack.
