Are you in Madrid and want to go shopping but the weather is not good and you don’t want to get wet? We have plenty of shopping malls in Madrid although some of them are not easily reachable by public transport.

So we thought that it would be a good idea to list here the most easy to reach shopping malls of Madrid. Here we go!


WOW shopping mall, in the heart of the city, is not a real shopping mal but more like a huge concept store. It’s located in an awesome building that housed once the Roma Hotel (and that’s why on the top of the building you will be finding an SPRQ sign, latin abbreviation meaning «The Roman Senate and People» and the Capitoline Wolf statue). WOW is a concept store designed as a multi-brand, multi-product shopping mall where you can find hundreds of branded items born on the internet, complemented by an innovative range of leisure area and food places. Consumers are offered a unique and different shopping experience, both digitally and physically.

▶   ABC Serrano Shopping Center

  • Serrano Street 61

In the first place, this shopping mall is worth a visit for its magnificent façade and the area in which it is located, the Salamanca district. Salamanca is one of the most important areas of Madrid, both for its particular distribution and for the famous inhabitants who have lived there over the years. The forerunner, to whom the district owes its name, was the Malaguène José de Salamanca y Mayol, Marquis de Salamanca, who designed a new location with a careful construction to house the aristocratic and bourgeois classes of Madrid.

It seems perhaps the least interesting of all considering its small size (the ABC Serrano shopping center offers some exclusive shops and above all, a privileged location). In addition to the shops, the Sweet Space Museum and The Robot Museum.
