Shopping in Spain

Spaniards prefer to go to shopping in small boutiques instead of going to big malls. This way they can explore different kind of shops and offers, and maybe rest for a while by stopping for tapas in a cafe somewhere on the street. If you want to get a meaningful and non-commercial souvenir you’ll definitely find something in these uniques hops. These shops offer cool design products with a Spanish touch. For example, get a magnetic football table player (yes, it was invented in Spain!).

One of the best things in Spain when it comes to shopping is the fact that shops are open until very late in the evening (9 or even 10 pm). While you’ll find a great variety of international brands, you’ll also come across a large choice of national and local brands. Are you ready to plan a full day of shopping in your trip to Spain?
