While Madrid's capital city attracts fashionistasfrom all over the world, the most discerning visitors will leave the city only a few minutes from the centre to discover the incomparable offers of The Style Outlets, the main factory outlets on the Iberian Peninsula!
Three easily accessible centres
With three major locations within easy reach by car and public transport from the centre of the capital, it will be easy to take a break between a visit to the Prado and a tapas bar to indulge in Las Rozas, San Sebastián de los Reyes or Getafe. The first one, Las Rozas, is located in the north of the community of Madrid and is celebrating its 25th year of existence! San Sebastián de los Reyes The Style Outlets is only 10 minutes from the airport, which is convenient for a last minute shopping stop before catching your flight, especially as this is where you'll find the widest range of outlet stores in the country! Those staying in the south of the city will prefer to go to the centre of Getafe.
A paradise for fashion victims
The list of stores in the three locations is as long as the arm; in fact, there are no less than200 stores of national and international brands where you can discover the latest trends in fashion, sports, beauty products and home furnishings. Fashion fanatics will want to visit San Sebastián de los Reyes The Style Outlets, which has almost a hundred shops selling clothes for the whole family, young and old. There are plenty of Spanish brands to choose from, such as Adolfo Domínguez, Bimba y Lola, Camper and Desigual, as well as the most stylish international brands such as Dockers, Geographical Norway, Hugo Boss, Barbour-Gant, Levi's and Massimo Dutti. The sneakers of the most stylish sportsmen will go to the Adidas, Asics, Le Coq Sportif, New Balance, Nike, O'Neill, Puma shops... and let's not forget the official Real Madrid shop!

Foreign visitors are entitled to VAT refunds and even additional discounts of 15% on factory prices.

A plethora of servicesThose who come by car will be delighted to be able to park for free and to find charging points for electric cars. The more connected will benefit from charging stations for smartphones and free Wi-Fi. And in terms of accessibility, strollers, wheelchairs and even umbrellas are available for loan. As for the restaurants, don't worry, you'll need to regain your strength between two compulsive shopping sessions, and the restaurant offer is once again well-stocked. San Sebastián de los Reyes and Getafe are close to major commercial and leisure parks where you can find a wide variety of cuisine and cafés for a well-deserved break, such as El Brillante, Brasa y Leña, Foster's Hollywood, Friday's, Tagliattela and Starbucks. And for those who also want to have fun, there is a bowling alley, a cinema and activities for the little ones.
Safety and sustainability
The three factory outlet centres are "present" in the face of the great problems of our time. In terms of safety, The Style Outlets has put in place stringent hygiene measures to protect the many customers and employees. Hydro-alcohol gel dispensers placed in all strategic locations, respect for safety distances, reinforced cleaning protocols, disinfection of air-conditioning systems, real-time regulation of the attendance gauge, indicators of the maximum authorised capacity in each store, everything was done to meet the constraints of the health crisis.
The company has also taken up the challenge of sustainable development, another major concern of our time. These three centres are certainly temples of consumption, but they are driven by a concern for responsible management for themselves and for the brands present in them. This commitment is reflected in projects to protect the environment, support local communities and raise awareness of sustainable development issues. In the day-to-day management, the concern for low environmental impact is ensured by sustainable building construction, the use of electricity from renewable energy sources, the installation of LED lighting systems, waste management and recycling programmes, and water saving.
All the ingredients are there for a pleasant shopping trip with friends or family; another way to enjoy a trip to the capital of Madrid!
