Best shopping in Madrid! Original art, jewelry, and gifts all made by Spanish artists. The staff is lovely and very helpful. The shop is as good or better than a museum book/gift shop!

We came here based on some recommendations from TA to find quality souvenirs. We did find one thing that we liked that was within our price range. Most of the stuff was pretty expensive.
