It doesn't have to be all culture and fine dining when you're in Madrid. Why not a little shopping too? On this page you'll find the five Madrid shopping experiences that made my 100 Things to Do in Madrid list.
1. Rastro Market

2. Gran Via, Calle Preciados and Calle Carmen
These two streets will take you from Puerta del Sol past a number of good shops and up to Gran Via, Madrid's most celebrated street for shopping.

5. Barrio Salamanca
