Meaning "Great Road", Gran Vía is a main thoroughfare in Madrid, built to connect Calle de Alcalá to Plaza de España. Lined with a mixture of high end shops, eateries, and bars that cover both ends of the spectrum, this lively bustling street is best enjoyed at night when the locals and tourists alike come out to eat, drink, and mingle into the wee hours of the morning.

Besides the shopping and nightlife scene, Gran Vía is best known for the 20th century architecture that creates landmarks along its way. One such example is the Edificio Metropolis, which stands at the head of Gran Vía and boasts a magnificent rooftop statue of the Goddess Victory. There are also several old movie theatres including the Capitol, built in the art deco style.

Practical Info

Gran Vía runs through central Madrid from Calle de Alcalá in the east to Plaza de España in the west. There are several hotels in this area, as it is well located amongst the cafes and clubs as well as the Prado museum and Retiro Park. It is also well connected in terms of metro stops - there are 5 along the way.
