  • The closest thing to Times Square in the old continent, at this point come together two of the most vital commercial arteries of the city: Gran Vía and Preciados Street, with some of the most renowned establishments in Madrid, such as the knee, the Fnac or own Corte Ingles. Dozens of franchises spread throughout the area, and always has with many people crowding the space. Essential.

  • It is a square that looks like it's route and/or a lot of people stop in Madrid. Stay in Gran Via and I became a place where a lot of people attending, both during the day as at night.

  • Also the animation that animates the place, do not forget to look up and admire the Palacio de la Prensa (in brick), the Carrion (= Capitol) building and the Callao cinema.

  • Great square right near the Schweppes tower. Great views from Corte Ingles
  • Here you can find one of the most emblematic buildings in madrid. It is a typical "post" of the city. You can find the Schweppes building, the cine callao and the Gourmet experience. It is as well a good point to go to Sol, Gran via and Plaza de España.
  • The spanish Picadilly Circus. Always full of people waiting for someone, this is the place where shoppers start there shopping, couples choose one of the many cinemas nearby and tourist stand in the middle of the street to take their stunning picture of Gran via with Plaza de España at the end. Don't miss the opportunity to get to the top of El Corte Ingles for a privileged view of the iconic Schweppes neon advertisement while eating some interesting gourmet food.
  • A very wide selction of coffee. Service is very slow for a starbucks but staff are very nice. nice atmosphere inside or on terrace to soak up callao. It is possible to sit there for the afternoon with work or a book and no'one says anything and itś comfortable. good place to chill or get some work done.
  • Nice street, full of people, stores and life
