Madrid is divided to quarters (barrios, in Spanish), the magic of each one of them is something that can be discovered only by visit them, walking there, eating, drinking, going to places, and shopping.
The LOS AUSTRIAS, SOL & CENTRO zone , with the famous Puerta del Sol, is a nice place to shop there.
At the center of this area, it is typical to find mostly some tourist souvenir, but try the calle de preciados - its one of the best street to shop at.
In Calle de Serrano, waiting for you one of the most famous fashion store of the original designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.
I loved her fashion and work, the use of unlimited range of colors, and the feeling that sometimes I wanted to but it all .
Ok , the prices are far from being normal, and at the same price of shoes you can fly and stay for over 2 or 3 weeks in Madrid.
Me myself, I never shopped there, but I went in and out with a big "I Wish" .
So its beautiful, and stylish, and for whomever like to torture himself by doing "eye shopping" only its probably a perfect place :)
