    This is a HUGE store! The variety is amazing as well as the prices but be prepared to spend quite awhile here and maybe even get lost here!

    El Corte Inglés is Spain's and Portugal's only remaining department store chain and is probably the biggest in Europe by revenue. There are at least three main stores in Madrid as well as some smaller stores such as the outlet centre in the middle of town. But this store in the Castellana district of Madrid, a bit north of the city centre, is the flagship branch of this department store chain. It is truly enormous, spread over 6 floors, a ground floor and three basement levels selling fashion and accessories for women, men and children, including several luxury concessions. And then upper floors selling all manner of appliances, culture and leisure, electronics, video games, sports and home ware.
    I found it all a bit overwhelming to be honest and whereas my partner had fun in the ladies fashion sections I quickly concluded I am not the target demographic for this store.
    Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of quality goods here at quality price tags, but as someone who does not wear designer gear, the mens clothing section was completely wasted on me. So I did what most men do and headed straight up to the electrical floor at the top. Stunning ! And if you can’t find a gadget here to interest you then I don’t know what to say. Then if you are into any kind of sport then head one floor down to the sports floor on the 5th. The only way I can possibly get across how big this one floor is dedicated to sports equipment is that the walking path around the floor is laid out as a 400 meters running track.
    And finally for anyone whose into gourmet food I recommend searching out the gourmet foods section, hidden in an offshoot on the second floor, which has food displays we only see the likes of in Harrods in London. And fortunately it also includes a small bar at the back where you can get a reasonably priced beer and excellent pinchos.
    If you are visiting Madrid, is it worth diverting to visit here? I suppose that depends on how excited you get by large department stores. The good news is that it is easy to do by Madrid’s excellent Metro system and the store sits right next door to the Nuevos Ministerios station, which is a few stops north on the blue line from the metro stations on Gran Via.

    We went up to the top floor where they had lots of gourmet food. I found some Spanish cookies and candies that will be good gifts for family and friends back home.
