You will find something for everybody, from international labels to local crafts, in designer stores, department stores and even outdoors.

Of the foods, we recommend the fish and vegetable preserves, olives stuffed with anchovies, chocolates, dates, sugared almonds (peladillas) and nougats (turrones).
