A high street with shoppers in Madrid

Going shopping in a Spanish town or city can be a great experience. As well as large shopping centres, you will often find independent boutiques, street markets and department stores. Most Spanish shops will also have their own tienda en línea (online shop). The most useful verb to talk about shopping is ir de compras (to go shopping) but ir de tiendas is often used to mean the same thing.
