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.

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.

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.
