If you want to do a little souvenir shopping in Madrid, you’ve got plenty of options. Besides the traditional shops for trinkets and postcards, there’s also markets, boutiques and even spots selling official Real Madrid gear if you’re hoping to bring home something special for yourself or for your loved ones.

Shop along Calle Mayor

For typical tourist gifts like Spanish fans, magnets, postcards and other memorabilia, there are many souvenir shops along Calle Mayor. While most of these stores sell pretty much the same items, it’s worth popping into a few to compare prices. You’ll find items like flamenco dresses for kids, soccer scarves and much more.

Open-air shopping at the Rastro

Madrid’s largest outdoor market, the Rastro happens every Sunday morning in La Latina. Head here to find leather goods and pashminas, and feel free to haggle a bit. Get there early to avoid the crowds, and afterwards, check out the hip bar scene in the neighborhood.

3. Please your palette

Deli

If your preference is for souvenirs of the variety that you can eat, pop to Ferpal to buy some Iberian ham or Spanish cheese.

There’s all sorts of neat gourmet items to be found at this family-owned joint – you can shop and get a lesson in Spanish deli meats and cheeses all at the same time.

Buy official

When it comes to jerseys and official Real Madrid or Atlético de Madrid gear, if you want to buy the genuine stuff, head to one of the official stores. For Real Madrid, hit up the giant megastore at Santiago Bernabéu stadium near Gate 55 or a Real Madrid Tienda Oficial store (various locations) in Madrid’s city center. For official Atlético Madrid gear, run over to the 1903 Atlético Madrid Megastore at the Vicente Calderón stadium, between gates 25 and 26.

4. Fancy fans

If the cheap, touristy fans aren’t fancy enough for you, check out Casa de Diego, which sells antique fans, umbrellas, canes, capes, shawls, hats and more if you want a serious vintage souvenir for yourself or as a gift. Prices aren’t cheap, but you can sleep easy knowing you purchased a quality product here.
