... El Corte Ingles
If you're looking for high-end department store shopping then this is the place you'll want to go! It's got everything you could ever possibly want from a store, with a nice little price tag to go along with it. This particular El Corte Ingles is located in the heart of Madrid, in the Puerta del Sol district where thousands descend every day. Charlie took this picture on December 23rd when we went downtown to take in all of the Christmas lights. The snowflakes on the side of the building were particularly impressive. And don't think that they only sell clothes and shoes! Nope. Head here for their gourmet food shop, book stores and really anything you're little heart could desire!
