Lots of fine shops and cafes and restaurants. Remeber to look up and get the view of some fine houses and their architectures.
Plaza Colon is a good place to start and then stroll along Calle Goya or Calle Serrano - 2 of the "finest" streets of Madrid.

When I visit Madrid, I always stay at the Hotel Melia Galgos because it is located in the Barrio de Salamanca. My wife and I enjoy walking along Calle Serrano to see the shops on this beautiful street. The other streets like Calle Goya, Calle Lagasca, Calle Velasquez, and Ortega y Gassett are also very good streets to explore. The good thing about this barrio is that it is the safest in Madrid and you do not have to worry about street crime because there is plenty of security. The most important politicians in Madrid live here, so they make sure that there are plenty of police patrols.
