  • This beautiful artery dating a little over a century, lined with buildings of time risk of disappearing forever because of politicians excuses

  • Yes it is crowded, busy and some places are very expensive, but you must go there, especially in the evening. They have the best H&M and Primark etc. 
  • In Madrid it is easy to move walking so take advantage of it and I had the pleasure of walking days and nights by the gran Vía is incredible architecture and what you see along the way.
