Some of the best shopping malls in Madrid

by | Jun 1, 2020 | Blog, Madrid, Spain

Madrid is home to some great outdoor shopping areas like the Gran Vía, but sometimes, especially when the weather is bad, a shopping mall is a much nicer shopping prospect. Read on to discover some of the city’s best shopping centres.

Centro Comercial La Gavia

If you need some furniture or just have an urge to stock up on cheap candles, then La Gavia is for you: it is home to one of Madrid’s two IKEAs (top tip: try to go on a weekday to avoid the crowds). As well as Scandi furniture, the shopping centre, located on the end of Line 1 on the metro, has a huge range of shops, from women’s and men’s fashion, to toy shops and tech stores, as well as a cinema. There are a good number of food options too: popular burger chain Five Guys is one of the latest fast food options to open here.

Opening times:

Shops: Monday–Sunday 10am–10pm

Restaurants: Sunday–Thursday 10am–1am; Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays 10am–3am

IKEA: Monday–Sunday 10am–10pm

Principe Pio

The Centro Comercial Príncipe Pío is a good option if you don’t want to stray too far from the city centre; it is located in the former Estación Norte train station just to the west – and within easy walking distance – of the centre. There is a good range of high street brands, from Spanish favourites like Zara and Mango to international names like H&M and Levi’s. There is a Cinesa cinema and a food court packed full of different dining options.

Opening times:

Shops: Monday–Saturday 10am–10pm; Sunday 11am–10pm

Opening times:

Shops: Monday–Sunday 10am–10pm
