If you love to shop, this is the place for you. There are plenty of international brands offering their wares along Gran Via. However, if you appreciate fine European architecture, this street will not disappoint. So many incredible buildings. Many feature huge sculptures that adorn the rooftops. If you’re hungry, there are more restaurants than you can shake a stick at - more on the side streets just off Gran Via. Public transport is easily accessible with at least two metro stops. Note, the streets can get crowded - keep an eye on your personal belongings.

Whether to the Plaza de Espana or to the Retiro I always feel I have arrived in Madrid when I stroll down Gran Via.

A street for walking and shopping! With a lot of people and events everyday.Shopping on January (where sales have started) is ideal

We travelled down ( yes, it’s quite deceptive how much of a slope there is on Gran Via) both by bus, where you get a great view and lot style of interesting information from the Hop on Hop off bus tours that frequent the city, and on foot to catch a tour bus nearby. It’s a must see as the buildings are stunning. Many have beautiful facades or an interesting history and 5ere are architectural styles from many eras to see. There are all the expected ‘big brand’ stores along the street too if you are in a mood (& have the means) to shop. We prefer to do this in the quieter suburbs where many chain stores also exist. It’s especially busy around 6pm onwards.
