This store is absolutely awesome! Their designs are very beautiful and excellent copies of the famous tiles found around Spain. This store is on it's 3rd or 4th generation owner, and he was extremely nice and informative providing explanations on all the tiles in the...More
Yes, maybe you could find the same items cheaper some place else, but probably not an owner who is as nice and friendly as this shop. I'd rather buy here leaving with a wonderful, pleasant experience.
Instead of the touristy stores with rude staff who...More
4th generation shop, sells ceramics made by Spanish artists, and the place is jammed with beautiful items. We loved this store. The owner is very friendly, and has a story or anecdote about where the items come from. A definite must-do in Madrid!
To cap my exciting and memorable trip to Spain, I decided to look into Spanish pottery stores. I visited Antigua Casa Talavera just as the store was opening in the morning. I was greeted by Jose, the store manager, with a big smile, background stories...More
It's true that this shop is a jewel - huge collection from various artists. The owner is very nice & friendly but the prices are very very expensive. We found the same nice pieces (same quality) in a much lower price
I passed that shop by chance on my way to another one. I entered and was astonished by the quality of the products. Some authentic Spanish ceramics! And the owner (from a lineage of owners) is so nice: he can tell you the history of...More
This small store had the best collection of handmade ceramic plates, bowls, pitchers, tiles etc. Owner is so friendly and helpful. Lovely to stop in and look around. Prices are not cheap, but work is all done by artists.
This place is very hard to find. With that said, I would suggest visiting during the day when it is open as you will not be able to find it when it is closed and the door is not open. It is very well hidden....More
I like to bring home something from every trip that was made locally. This was the exact place I was looking for. An impressive selection of items made from local families around Spain. The owner was super helpful and incredibly informative on all of the...More
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.
