The 5 best shopping streets in Madrid
1) Callejón de Jorge Juan
This small dead-end street starts from Jorge Juan in between Calle Lagasca and Calle Claudio Coello. Here you can experience the real Madrid, away from the global brands you’ll find on the streets of any big city. This street is lined with the small boutiques of Spanish and international designers such as Robert Clergerie, Isabel Marant or Angel Schlesser.
2) Calle Fuencarral
This very popular shopping street runs from Gran Vía all the way up to Calle Sagasta. If you are looking for streetwear and sneakers, this is the perfect street for you, with all the major sport brands and smaller multi-brand stores with young designers and casual clothing.
3) Gran Vía
The high-street fashion district par excellence. With flagship stores of some of the big fashion brands, Gran Vía is a favourite hangout for teenagers. At the intersection with Plaza del Callao, you walk into Calle Preciados where you will find two shops of the Spanish department store El Corte Inglés and a huge Fnac-shop.
4) Calle Claudia Coello
This is a beautiful street with some of the best independent shops for both men and women. Nestled in the elegant Salamanca district, the street has almost no traffic (it’s a one-way street) and is lined with trees on both sides. The best shops are between Calle Goya and Calle Ortega y Gasset.
5) Calle Serrano
Calle Serrano is the upmarket, posher version of Gran Vía. Here you will find the flagships of Luis Vuitton, Gucci or renowned Spanish fashion designers Agata Ruiz de la Prada and Roberto Verino. Even the architecture of the 5-storey Zara branch is unique. The shop is located in a refurbished building from the 1920s.
