    ROMERO SANCHEZ: TORREMOLINOS SOUVENIRS ( REGALOS )

    by LoriPori Updated Feb 23, 2006

    San Miguel Shopping Area

    I just loved shopping and snooping on Calle San Miguel. So much variety . As I was looking for some souvenirs ( regalos ) to bring home to Canada, I stopped in this nice little shop ROMERO SANCHEZ which had a nice stock of souvenirs and reasonably priced too. I picked up a few small 'Olive' dishes. They were so cute. They were terra cotta and had a little pot to put the olive pits in and an even smaller pot to put toothpicks in. The only thing is I should have thought of how heavy they would be in my carry-on. Oh well, I just had Hansi carry it. HeHe!

    VARIOUS SHOPS: CALLE SAN MIGUEL

    by LoriPori Written Feb 15, 2006

    Calle San Miguel
    4 more images

    Torremolinos centre itself offers shops selling everything imaginable with the most famous street being CALLE SAN MIGUEL. This runs from the main street down the hill towards the sea. It is lined with shops and bars and the lower end, becomes a narrow walkway with hundreds of steps to take you down the steep hillside to the beach at the bottom. You do need to be fairly fit to walk up this street and most people walk down and find an alternative way up. There is a lift availabe for those who are unable to make the climb.
    I walked up two or three times a week. I do take my time and check out all the little shops on the way up.

    Post Office: Where to buy your Stamps

    by Geoff_Wright Updated Mar 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Post Office

    The Main Post Office is to be found in the Avendo Palma de Mallorca, a couple of hundred yards to the west of the main square.

    What to buy: Buy your postage stamps here (what else??). the friendly staff may not speak English, so we split our cards into two bundles, one for Europe, and one for the Rest of the World, noting how many of each stamps we would want. We wrote on a piece of paper the total numbers required, allowing for some spare stamps for use in out of the way locations. The staff will affix the stamps, and keep the cards for their onward journey (one hopes!!).

    What to pay: (As at March 2003) Stamps for Europe are 51 Cents, and for the Rest of the World they are 76 Cents.
    Local shops may charge 80 Cents for a 51 Cent stamp (but this may have a different design)

    Various: Postcards for your VT Friends

    by Geoff_Wright Written Mar 31, 2003

    Calle Cuesta del Tajo

    Don't go to the first shop you see and buy all your post cards! We found that shops at the beach sold exactly the same views as shops in the town, but at twice the price. So if, like us, you wanted 20 or so cards, the difference was quite considerable.

    the same applies to postage stamps. Buy them at the Post Office at the normal rate, or at the various gift shops for about 50% more!!

    What to pay: Anything from 15 to 35 Cents

    Too Many to Name: Everything You Never Really Wanted!

    by Geoff_Wright Written Mar 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calle San Miguel

    The Calle San Miguel is the street where you will find almost everything that you never really wanted! It's crammed full of many nice shops, selling gifts, shoes, clothes jewelery and so on.

    What to buy: If you fancy something in the jewelery line, do shop around before you decide. We found that almost all the shops will offer you a reasonable discount, but there is a little pressure into buying 'there and then'. It's always best to look elsewhere. Jaymes wanted a gold neclace, which was going to cost 75 Euros. He almost bought it, but decided th 'sleep on it'. In the end, he decided not to buy one at all. Sensible boy, haha.

    What to pay: Ask about discounts before you purchase

    Joyeria Espana is one of a number of jewellery stores on the Calle San Miguel pedestrian strip. Prices are reasonable and you can bargain. The quality is good and the staff are very helpful.
