One of the world's top fashion/retail companies is based right here - try that on for size!
The world's first Zara shop, and its powerhouse parent company.
Did you know that one of the world's top fashion/retail powerhouses, the Inditex Corporation, is Galician? Owned by Amancio Ortega, one of the richest men in the world, it owns nearly 100 brands - not just Spain's own Zara but also the international likes of Massimo Dutti. Its headquarters is located in the Arteixo industrial park, a 15-to-20-minute drive from downtown. Point of interest: the downtown street Calle de Juan Flórez was the site of the very first Zara shop, in 1975, and still in business at No. 64.
