I just have a question about a shop that was amazing when I was living in Valladolid. We could hardly go a week without stopping in. It's right next to Berschka by the Corte Ingles on Calle Menendez de Pelayo. Pimkie on that street across the way was also great and reasonably priced but I just can't remember the name of the one next to Berschka. It's truly a great place, a little crazy during rebajas but great deals. If anyone can remember the name I'd be greatful.
Another central, pedestrian street, plenty of all kind of stores. It has tha greatest concentration of shoes stores of the city, but you may find many other things. There is also a cinema.
What to buy: Specially shoes, but also other clothes, electronics, jewelry, pastries ...
La "Calle Santiago" (Santiago street) is the traditional shopping street of the city. It is a pedestrian street, between the Plaza Mayor and the Plaza Zorilla (that is, the very heart of the city), plenty of shops: many international brands can be found also there, and there is too a department store of "El Corte Ingles" in a lateral street.
It is no unusual to find music on the street.
What to buy: Department stores, clothes, jewelry, gifts, shoes .... a bit of everything.
If you hear the name of the shop you would
go in right away? We did.
We saw this large window shop with a lot of
inviting bottles of wine.
I don't drink wine but it is not that I dislike Alcohol.
I spotted a bottle of liquor and wondered
if they had something tipical from around.
And they had..
Of course the nice helpfull gentlemen didn't
spoke a word English...who cares. I got what
What to buy:
We bought a bottle of local liquer with a
fruity taste. The perfect thing for our
next party. (less then 10 euro)
But of course they also got a wide choise
of fine wines from the area.
We just came from the Plaza Mayor and
were on our way to the cathedral when
we saw this shopwindow.
The lady of the shop was just fillin it with
fresh goodies. Boy did they look good.
Pies , cakes , sweets...filled with cream ,
What to buy:
You can buy these fresh things and
swallow them right away... Or/and
You can also take home some cookies.
They got all the local specialities....
What to pay:
I think it is very cheap - but I live in
Some adjacent streets to Plaza Mayor are only for pedestrians and they have plenty of offer concerning shops - many makes and brands may be found there, including the Spanish department store El Corte Ingles. Other El Corte Ingles shops may be found along the city, most of them pretty well signalled. Outside the city centre there are also Shopping Centres.
At the elegant Paseo de Zorilla you find the bigger version of the El Corte Ingles department store. Here you find a wide range of designer labels.
In the old city center a smaller version of the El Corte Ingles department store is located. On the top floor, where the restaurant is located, you have a splendid view over the city.
