The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro
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 collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

Lovely olive oil shop
May 2016 • Solo
My last day and I wanted some nice olive oil to take home and after reading about this one in the guidebook I realised I was very close to it - also very near ( just round the corner from) the Museum of Romanticimo.

They have some very expensive olive oil but also some at reasonable prices

Amazing selection of the best Olive Oil
Jul 2015 • Couples
This shop boasts an amazing range of high quality olive oils, that is the "Virgen Extra" variety which is the oil from a cold, mechanical only pressing of olives. It has from little bottles for travelling, to big cans all the way through beautifully packaged prized olive oils which can make a wonderful present.

With the largest production of olive oil in the world and literally hundreds of small producers, very often in the form of cooperatives, it takes a specialty shop to be able to really appreciate that. The visit also allows you go get to know a few of the many varieties of olives and their different tastes.

The shop is run by an NGO which aims to promote the Spanish olive oil and prices are reasonable. You can find them cheaper elsewhere, but also easily more expensive. And nowhere are you going to get the selection or advice you can get here. Regarding advice it's true the shop keepers can sometimes be a bit distant, and their English is a little poor, but if you are patient and appreciative you should be able to extract some good recommendations suited to your tastes or those of your potential present-recipients.

Beware it closes in August.
