- Fantastic. Great buzz and great quality food & wine. Definitely worth a visit, one of the highlights of Madrid tripWritten 26 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I was mostly very impressed with the cleanliness of the store, the huge selections of clothing in all sizes and the ease of trying clothing on without huge lines. Every member of staff was most helpful.
My only disappointment was the home section which basically barely exists. I was looking for gifts to take home and was somewhat scratching around for non clothing itemsWritten 1 February 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Grerat place to try different foods, lots of tapas. Restaurant on the top floor gets crowded pretty fast. Bottom floor has a great selection of hams and cheeses, and mistura ice cream which was great.
The Italian place was great, and the fish place on the 2nd floor too. Lots of people, plenty of places to sit and chat!Written 30 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Mercado de La Paz is a beautiful market, for its displays and food offerings. Many a review have attested to that.
The pleasant surprise is the Portuguese shop, Maninha Sardinha, which sells Portuguese wine, canned fish, coffee (also from Timor), and perhaps one its most iconic treats, pasteis de nata. Having been to Portugal prior to visiting Spain I was so pleased to see a shop offer pasteis de nata. Even more so, when I sampled one (with port wine which is their creation), so crispy its crust and so flavorful its content.
I also tried the chicken rice with raisin dish, a specialty of Maria mom’s cooking. Maria runs the shop and has an interesting family history. All dishes were wonderfully enjoyable.
For sure, when in Madrid next I will stop by this local market and indulge in Portuguese products from Maninha Sardinha. IMO Portuguese food is underrated compared to better known ones from the Continent!Written 16 September 2022
- Huge market. Lots of stalls and antique shops, heaven for people who wants to buy curious and old items. You can find clothes, stuff for the home and places where you can drink or eat something in there, too. It's worth going in the morning, after that it usually gets crowded. In any case, it's worth going there at least once.Written 22 April 2022
- Great market, very friendly with fantastic range of produce. Craft stalls, food stalls, bars etc. Much less touristy than San Miguel (less flashy, cheaper and more authentic).Written 27 July 2022
- You should always go where the locals recommend. So we went to La Lopez in Mercado Anton Martin. The food is excellent, ad is the wine and beer. The staff are really friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend.Written 11 March 2022
- Goes from a windswept desert in midwinter to a vibrant experimental cultural centre when the sun shines.....with its theatres, exhibitions, cineteca, cafés. and outdoor life.Written 12 March 2021
- Worthwhile visit of an exibition about the holocaust - a lot of exhibits - mostly well known fotos and items - a small Spanish element and well put togetherWritten 3 February 2019
- Mercado Vallehermoso is one of the best mercado's to visit in Madrid.
Whereas Mercado San Miguel is predominantly aimed at the tourist market this mercado is most definitely a locals mercado.
Set over two floors ,theres dozens upon dozens of stalls were you can purchase all manner of local fresh produce or even better you can sample great craft beers,wines ,vermuts and great Spanish cuisine sat outside the stalls.
This mercado is particularly popular with the locals but I have noticed on my last few visits more tourists such as myself visiting here.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Friday evening, the atmosphere in here was superb, we enjoyed craft beer,vermuts and great tapa, vibe in here was really good, we stayed here for about 3 hours ,visited quite a few stalls ,had a great time before we moved on .
Mercado Vallehermoso is easy to locate, we jumped the metro down to stop Quevedo and walked down Calle De Arapiles and cut onto Calle Vallehermoso were you will find this mercado.
Most definitely well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Madrid.Written 18 September 2019
- Many shops and variety of purchases. Good prices (depending of brands).
Also variety in food and beverages, but with medium quality.Written 25 January 2020
- Modern Mall at a Train/Metro Station. I was here to catch a train and since I arrived ahead, I looked around the Mall. It featured typical mall options, places to head, brand/flag outlets etc. Nice place to hang out.Written 30 April 2020
- Before we heading to this Shopping Mall, our hotel given us a privileged card where she said we can get 10% discount if shopping there! When we were in the Mall we checked many items such as perfumes, cosmetics, aftershave, handbags, cloths, etc., Though no difference than in Denmark (in fact few Euros are higher than in Denmark) start with we bought a Lacome perfume, Dior Foundation & Channel aftershave for which we accumulated credits of nearly Euro 30. Cashier said we can avail them when buying clothes and more other products in the same shop or any of their branches, except Perfumes & Cosmetics. Tricky part was when we tried to buy other products such as cloths, a belt in different brands like Hugo Boss and many others then their reply was they are “excluded” in that offer! It was so frustrated for us to find out what products we can buy in order to avail accumulated credits since every item we choose/asked reply was “no they are not included”. In the end we bought a “toilet bag” just to use the accumulated points though we had other important things in minds to purchase.Written 25 February 2020
- This is a very nice shopping center close to Castellana. It is the biggest Corte Ingles in Spain. It has high end stores such as Prada, Cacharel, Channel... At the same time, there are plenty of brands for the middle class. I really love the grocery store at the basement. It has all kind of international foods!Written 11 February 2021
- This street was one of the highlights of our trip to Madrid. It might only be a relatively short street but it’s one of the best. It’s a warren of tapas bars, with around 50 or so in the one small area. We started at one end and made our way along them, picking and choosing in a random sort of way. The street follows the curves of the original 12th-century city wall and in some of the bars like Posada del Dragon, you can still see remains of some of the wall.
Our top three places were:
1. La Concha
2. Pousada del Dragon
3. Casa Luca
La Concha was our absolute favourite. A tiny place full of character that served an amazing vermouth cocktail and complimentary tapas. They make their own vermouth which they sell at €12 a bottle. We left with our backpack clinking because we'd bought two.
