In Plaza Mayor, near Arco de Cuchilleros, in a late seventeenth century building which is one of Hapsburg Madrid's icons, mentioned by novelist Benito Pérez Galdós in “Fortunata y Jacinta”, we find El Arco Artesanía.
Since 1991 this charming spot has brought together over 50 small workshops, where innovative hand-crafted designs are produced and artists create unique items or small series in materials such as iron, glass, ceramics, cardboard or silver. A fascinating selection of jewels, silk accessories, fans, purses and other decorative or useful objects can be found here.
