While staying at the Madrid Palace last week, I took a lovely morning walk around the area and found the Lola Fonseca shop. There were so many beautiful scarves, it was difficult to choose just one. I finally chose a red scarf to remind me of my first trip to Spain and for only 40 Euros. Please visit and enjoy... More

Take the time to visit Lola.....she is a wonderful person and her hand-painted scarves are truly unique. If you want to find a special gift for someone....or yourself....this would be a place to look. Lola hand-paints the scarves in the back of her shop and her more elaborate scarves are simply stunning. As the other reviews have said, you can... More

I stumbled upon this lovely little shop by accident, and even though I am not a big fan of scarves I couldn't resist the sign saying "Please touch - Tocar por favor". The shop assistant was very helpful, even though I told him right away that their scarves were too expensive for me so I only wanted to look (and... More

We had heard about Lola Fonseca's hand-painted scarves, so we went to her shop looking for some presents to bring back home. When we went in, we quickly understood why she is so well known. From the moment you enter the store, you feel the magic of a very special place. Very recomendable.

We stumbled into this shop on our way to Cerveceria Cervantes and were floored by how beautiful the hand-painted scarves were. Considering this is wearable art, I wasn't that bothered by the prices, but it's certainly not cheap. They also replicate photos so you can bring in (or email) a favorite image and they'll paint it onto a scarf. How... More

The shop itself wasn't that hard to find, it's just a street or so off from the Prado and is a pretty quiet area to wander around, even more so in the morning that we decided to pop by Lola's store. Lola herself was the only one there when we popped by and was so busy hand painting more of... More

This shop is a must on your visit to Madrid. It's tucked away in a little street but wasn't too hard to find. Just look for the colorful storefront and you're there. The man who helped me was very friendly and had me try on a couple of scarves. The designs are gorgeous, including a show stopper featuring a school... More

My wife and I stopped in to take a look and we found a good range of really nice scarves and other silk items. The pricing was very reasonable and there was a good range of prices on items (25-100 Euros). While we were there they were working on some new items in the back and were happy to show... More

During a recent vacation in Madrid, I was walking in the Lope de Vega neighborhood and saw in a shop window an exquisite silk scarf with images of dragonflies. My wife looked at it and said it would make a wonderful gift for my mother, who we both knew likes dragonflies. I stepped in and the very friendly staff introduced... More
