El Corte Inglés

El Corte Inglés, the retail giant of Spain, is both loved and hated, but successfully performs the main task of a department store, which is to provide a wide variety of products for most people. Here, you can find designer clothing, their own affordable and mid-range clothing lines, large perfumery and makeup sections, accessories, toys, children's and baby's clothing, art supplies, souvenirs, food and gourmet products, home furniture and decor, electronics, books, and various services all under one roof.


In Madrid, there are three primary shopping districts: Centro, which spans the area between Puerta del Sol and Gran Vía; Chueca, located directly north and east of Centro; and Salamanca, situated a bit further to the east. Each of these areas offers a distinct shopping experience, particularly in terms of the range of products available. Centro offers a middle-of-the-road shopping experience, while Chueca caters to trendy shoppers seeking the latest styles. On the other hand, Salamanca features expensive designer fashion labels, making it the go-to destination for luxury shopping.
