El Corte Inglés
Madrid Castellana Store
El Corte Inglés was founded in 1940, El Corte Inglés forms part of Spain’s largest retail group and is very much ingrained in the Madrid way of life. As the Spanish like to remind you, if you can’t find what you are looking for in El Corte Inglés, it probably doesn’t exist. With its imposing architecture, the recently remodelled Castellana outlet is a landmark in Madrid and offers 170,000 square metres of shopping paradise, including a watches department. The personnel are exceptionally well trained and speak a multitude of languages. It’s also nice to know that after an intense shopping session, El Corte Inglés has a gourmet area where you can relax and enjoy some tapas.
