Gran Vía: City Guide

Over a hundred years ago, Gran Vía was built as Madrid’s answer to New York’s Broadway and Fifth Avenue. With magnificent architecture, luxury shops and theatres, it was a playground for wealthy Madrilenos and Hollywood stars. In 2011 Gran Vía is still the city’s buzzing enertainment hub. This long street runs from Calle de Alcalá to Plaza de España and is home to fantastic shopping, restaurants, bars, cinema and theatre.
