El Cort Ingles - THE Spanish department store
This Spanish department store is an institution and well worth a visit if you are in the area. They sell absolutely everything from clothes to cookware, food to flowers, books to bracelets, perfume to purses, toys to toiletries, all in a very pleasant environment. There are El Cort Ingles stores in all major cities in Spain. On the Costa del Sol, the flagship store is in flashy Puerto Banus and is in keeping with the nearby posh shops. Their Gourmet Food Section is amazing, but has correspondingly ridiculous prices so go and have a look but don’t be tempted to buy there, most Spanish supermarkets sell great quality produce but without the insane prices!
