Gran Via

Madrid—like any major international city—is quite stylish. People dress well and with such majestic architecture throughout, it’s hard to imagine not dressing up for a walk down the street. Especially a street as majestic as Gran Vía.

Gran Vía runs down the city and it’s where you’ll find all the hip, trendy shops that I’ve always loved about Europe. As part of Madrid’s tourism campaign, Gran Vía has hosted some exciting stuff in the past month.

Who doesn’t love dancing down the middle of the street? I, however, just window shopped because I’m a backpacker on a budget. These are some of the things I found and wanted, but obviously kept my wallet closed.

Something I noticed: the street is very colorful! Which matches really well with the posters celebrating the 100 años de la Gran Vía.
