You probably cannot go anywhere in Madrid without happening upon Gran Via. It is fully of shops, restaurants, hotels and fast food joints. Some pretty impressive buildings which feels at times like the streets of New York and flashy signs are like being in Piccadilly...More

Really good place to find anything from any brand you want, such as H&M and Primark, for a great price, or Desigual, with an higher price. The real cool thing is to get on the tiny streets acroos Gran Via to get great drinks.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
