Great shop with every colour and size espadrille you could want at very good prices. Also do kids sizes in the same range of colours. Adorable miniature espadrille fridge magnets for a few euros each.

Got myself 2 pairs of stripped size 44 (ladies) and they are so comfortable. I was hoping to find some "pretty/fashionable" ladies shoes but basically had to purchase a mens style. None of the fancy ones went up to my size. Short wait. No English...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
