Spain is filled with shopping treasures. Whether you want to go shopping as usual or take the hidden path and shop for some Spanish treasures. Spain has it all to offer from large shopping malls, outlets, sporting stores (Decathlon) to historic specialist shops. We take you shopping to Mojacar Pueblo (the city on the hill), or Murcia or Almeria on one of our shopping trips. If part of your group wishes to take a city tour, those interested in shopping can go shopping with our charming shopping guide.
Murcia has become a hub for having some of the best shopping on the Costa Blanca/Costa Calida. Murcia is the largest city of the province of Murcia and to the north of the city, just south of the Costa Blanca there are many shopping malls and developments with many people driving hours and hours in order to take a day trip to go shopping in Murcia, such is the great variety of major retailers in one place and location. If you are in the mood to see some architectural beauty while in Murcia the Town Hall Square and the Episcopal Palace are worth a visit.

In the historic district, little specialist shops crowd among tapas bars in the narrow streets, radiating out from the Puerta de Purchena and along Calle de las Tiendas and Calle Real.
Jugs are made using centuries-old techniques, in shapes inspired by Phoenicians and Arabs. The Moorish influence can also be seen in decoratively woven Jarapas blankets. You will find tagine cooking pots at Bazar Arabe on Calle Almanzor next to the Alcazaba.
Stock up on food specialities at the busy covered Mercado. Go south from there, on Calle de los Reyes Católicos, for the excellent El Libro Picasso bookshop.
The Paseo de Almería is good for fashion and shoes, with the Marin Rosa department store and fashion staples Mango, Zara, and Women’s Secret lingerie.
Off the Paseo, along Calle Rueda Lopez, La Vinoteca wine cellars in the Galeria Almericentro shopping centre have a mind-blowing selection of wines. In the city’s business district, the Mediterráneo shopping centre on Avenida del Mediterráneo has plenty of fashion stores and a supermarket.
