On our first day, we basically checked out the area around our hotel located on Gran Via. The back streets were also teeming with different shops. I tell you Madrid will burn your pocket. It’s a city for some wonderful shopping. They had a couple of Zara stores a block away from each other, same with other popular stores like Springfield, Bershka, H&M, etc.
It was time for lunch and we found this All U Can Eat resto for Euro 9.95 which wasn’t bad. They had about 4 of these in the area.
After walking for a while, we decided to go to the supermarket to buy some necessities like water and snacks. There are a couple of El Corte Ingles Department store with the grocery on the basement within a block from each other so you can take your pick.
I bought 3 shoes in a span of 30 minutes..
We went back to our hotel and called it a night.
