Mercado de la Paz

Established in 1882, Mercado de La Paz is a popular indoor market that features a variety of stalls selling fresh produce, meat, and gourmet delicacies. The best-selling stalls are the ones with Serrano ham and amazing local cheese varieties.


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.
