Shopping in Madrid

Where to Shop in Madrid

Alva kis wear.For 'alternative', 'youth fashion' and 'boutique shopping' one street that you should explore is calle Fuencarral, just north of Gran Via. The authorities have spent several years 'tidying up' the street, laying new paving and installing modern street furniture etc. From here you can then dip into the districts of Malasaña and Chueca which are peppered with trendy stores - fashion, hairdressers, electronics, health foods, comics, records, etc.

Left: The Diesel store in Fuencarral. The shop also has a 'magic mirror' that enables potential customers trying on any items to see how the clothes look from the back as well as from the front.
