Buildings are wow! However the shopping experience was a bit disappointing. You can find the 5 brand shops you see all over Madrid.

Busy street, beautiful architecture, perfect for shopping. Manu great fashion stores found: Bershka, Pull&Bear, Stradivarius, H&M, Sfera, Oysho, Primark, Mango, Zara, Nike, Adidas, etc. Great cosmetics stores as well.

Huge crowds shopping on Gran Via especially at Primark, a large, cheap clothing store. It is near Puerta del Sol too.

Incredible buildings. Lots of people. Look up and enjoy the decorations on the terraces. In any other city with more self confidence than my dear Madrid, Gran Vía would sell T-shirts.

Tons of really nice stores line this street. Many spectacular building so marvel at the architecture. Only issue, too many American Fast Food places kind of ruins the walk.

Fairly typical large city main street loaded with high end (and some discount) stores. Sort of like 5th Avenue in New York City. Tons of people cruising back and forth. Centered between the Gan Via and Callao Metro stations. Plenty of eateries within a block...More

The different types of buildings and the cleanliness of them makes the street very welcoming as streets can? The one thing to watch is the speed the cars take off at the lights.

If architecture is your thing, then this is a must see. Great vibe along the street, with some nice cafes and bars in the side streets

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
