Visited a beautiful jewelry shop. You can buy every kind of bead you can think of over here!
Local bakery shop. We tried some of these pastries that practically melt in your mouth!
Polvorones are one of the most popular sweets in Madrid among the locals.
Next up was one of the most gorgeous silk scarf shops i've ever seen. These scarves can be customized with words. Many local men used to print love letters on the scarves for their special lady.
Here are some samples of love notes written in the scarf. I absolutely love the idea of these love notes printed in the scarves. So romantic!
And this is the brilliant man behind these beautiful scarves, Claudio. We got to see him in action. Such an amazing, humble, man.
Stopped over at a traditional Flamenco dress shop! These dresses are super fun. This shop has been around for a long time, and the local Flamenco dancers all get their dresses made here.
No shortage of olives here in Madrid!
Another fabulous shop! I was stuck here for quite some time oooh-ing and ahhh-ing these gorgeous shoes! This shop made and sold traditional Flamenco shoes. They are made in such a way to really put the step in the Flamenco dance.
The amazing shoe designer!
Our last and final stop was at a food market. This market was packed with people and vendors. You could get everything from coffee, to wine, to cheese, and meats! We filled ourselves with some of the most delicious local treats!
And of course, no day is complete in Madrid without several glasses of the finest wine!
I hope you enjoyed that! I highly recommend booking with Insiders Madrid when visiting Madrid, as they make these tours 100% customizable to you.
