So, therefore, after posting about the monuments and sights of my beloved Madrid will go into the places of shopping and restaurant with a series Restaurant: XXX Madrid or Shopping: XXX Madrid. Hope you enjoy them and do try them when visiting Madrid the food and shopping is an experience to behold in lovely Madrid. For lack of creativity ,I will copy this first paragraph into the subsequents posts! ::)

In the middle of Plaza Mayor at No 30, you will find a well-known centennial place, famous for its hats. Casa Yustas, perhaps you passed by without noticing after all the commotion in the square, but do really do go in. My grandparents shop for their hats here and now my sons buys caps!!

Its founder Leopoldo Yustas Ayuso, formed this store with the union of several small businesses that he had. The origins of the store date back to 1886, although its commercial activity with the current business began in 1894. The cap of King Felipe VI, for example, or many Royal Guard hats, have been made in the workshops of Casa Yustas!

It also has its own workshop for the manufacture of badges, flag assemblies, pennants and caps. In its current three exhibition floors where you can find gift items, souvenirs and porcelains, hats and military effects. Among the headgear we find traditional hats, made to measure and with a more modern line.

In 1993 José Yustas died. His heirs did not want to continue in the business and Francisco Corazóna, who had met him with a good friendship with the Yustas family, decided to buy it. In this way Casa Yustas changed family, although the Corazonas ‘ kept all the staff there. With him went our family connection with the José Yustas’s family.

One of the first changes was to open the line of women and little by little also that of children. They have more than 12,000 hat references. There are classic models that are for sale all year and depending on whether summer or winter adapt the rest of the article. They also perform gallons and military and civil decorations. The expansion of the business line meant opening to brands such as Majorica, Tous and Lladró. And among the surprises of this store is the basement, ancient caves that are said to be connected and during the civil war the family hid there. Now it has recovered and they have created a private sales space for tourists.
