Paradise of shopping

This street is a paradise for all those who like shopping. There are many shops along the street, clothes, shoes, whatever you want and of all styles and colors. The design shop windows are constantly in competition to be the coolest and even though they won't let you take a picture to prevent plagiarism, from the street no one can tell you you can't.

Also the colorful Fuencarral flea-market is worth visiting. It is not the best I have been to, for sure, but the friendly locals and stall-keepers make this flea-market somehow special...

For fashion victims

This is the street where the most shops for young people are found, the so-called "fashion victims". You can find shops like Quicksilver, Energie, O'neil, Puma, G-Star, Levi's, Foot Locker. One of the most emblematic spots of the street is Fuencarral Market. This market has about twenty small shops with various types of clothes. There is also a small hairdresser's where I never dared to go and some small bars as well. One can say Fuencarral is one of the liveliest streets in Madrid, at any time of the day you see people walking there. Most of them are picture-worthy.

Better to walk than to shop

Fuencarral street is supposed to be the trendiest street in Madrid: you can find brands like Energie, Desigual, Miss Sixty and Co, with shop windows looking like magazine and with the highest prices. Half way up the street, there is also Fuencarral Market, with more original stuff but as expensive. I think this trendy aspect is starting to loose credibility...

To start with, there are chains you can also find in Gran Vía, Preciados, or any mall or shopping street, also in any city. So I guess it is not as exclusive as it seems. Also, a few years ago a shopkeeper association started speculating in the triangle of the Ballesta, Barco and Desengaño street (between Gran Vía and Fuencarral) in order to create a sort of (fake) Londoner Soho, taking the advantage of the reputation of the street.

So this area is a little downcast now. I recommend, for the real trendy shopping, the neighborhood of Malasaña (once you passed Fuencarral Market, in the direction to Tribunal subway station, in any of the streets on your left). I do admit there is a positive point about Fuencarral: it recently became pedestrian. It is perfect to have a hectic walk in between the shop windows and the eye-catching people.

The temple shopping

The long street Fuencarral, which part of the Gran Vía and goes off to the north of Madrid is famous throughout the capital. Dozens of shops of all kinds have been grouped, clothing mainly, but not only, and pedestrian street is often crowded at the opening of shops. International brands, Spanish channels, small individuals connected ... there is something for everyone. When you come back rocker, rather classical, rather plain, rather chic rather colorful, or rather nothing in particular, you will inevitably find what renew your wardrobe and your range of accessories. Among the colorful storefronts that are linked, we find, among others, Shana for low prices, Muji for gadgets amazing houses, Glam unlikely to shop at thrift tunes, Desigual for large budgets, Strover for nice shoes and at the top of the street, the inevitable Tiger. There are also amazing Fuencarral Market, a sort of mall a little "underground", where originality is ensured. And a well-deserved shopping session during this long pause, do not hesitate to enjoy an ice cream or a coffee on the terrace of the Place de Fuencarral, or good tapas bars to Court!

Le temple du shopping

La longue rue Fuencarral, qui part de la Gran Vía et remonte loin vers le Nord de Madrid est célèbre dans toute la capitale. Des dizaines de magasins en tous genres y ont été regroupés, de vêtements principalement, mais pas seulement, et l'artère piétonne est souvent bondée dès l'ouverture des boutiques. Grandes marques internationales, chaînes espagnoles, petits particuliers branchés... il y en a pour tous les goûts. Que vous soyez plutôt rockeur, plutôt classique, plutôt sobre, plutôt chic, plutôt coloré, ou plutôt rien en particulier, vous y trouverez forcément de quoi renouveler votre garde-robe et votre panoplie d'accessoires. Parmi les vitrines colorées qui s'enchaînent, on trouve, entre autres, Shana pour les petits prix, Muji pour des gadgets maisons étonnants, Glam pour la boutique improbable aux airs de friperie, Desigual pour les gros budgets, Strover pour des chaussures sympas, et tout en haut de la rue, l'immanquable Tiger. On y trouve aussi l'étonnant Marché de Fuencarral, sorte de centre commercial un peu "underground", où l'originalité est assurée. Et pour faire une pause bien méritée pendant cette longue session shopping, n'hésitez pas à profiter d'une glace ou d'un café sur les terrasses de la Place de Fuencarral, ou de bons bars à tapas vers Tribunal !

This long street located in the heart of Madrid, in the district "Chueca" is a place renowned for its many boutiques, any style for all tastes and all ages! ... Diesel at Comptoir des Cotonniers, Replay, Pepe Jeans or Burburry have a shop in this street ... Very nice small restaurants have also found a place, which allows for short breaks ... nice! The street is busy almost 24h/24 because it represents an almost obligatory passage heading north from downtown ...

Cette longue rue, située en plein centre de Madrid, dans le quartier "Chueca", est un lieu réputé pour ses nombreuses boutiques de mode, de tout style, pour tous les goûts et tous les âges...! De Diesel au Comptoir des Cotonniers, Replay, Pepe Jeans ou encore Burburry ont un magasin dans cette rue... De petits restaurants très sympa ont aussi trouvé une place, ce qui permet de faire des petites pauses sympathiques...! La rue reste animée presque 24h/24, car elle représente un passage presque obligé pour remonter vers le nord du centre-ville...

Qu said of fuencarral street

We decided to travel to Madrid in household and chance led us to choose a hostel downtown, right on the street Fuencarral. Exit to know, buy and return very late and tired became routine for eight days. After a day, we were sure that the choice of the area was the best. From Fuencarral walk and you close all: La Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran Vía Metro stations, Sun and Court that take you from that line 1 to connections and Atocha Cercanías-Renfe to take other destinations in the High Speed ​​Train Ave. If one day you'll wake with thirst for culture, trek through the Fuencarral to Puerta del Sol you go through until you reach Calle de las Huertas, which will take you through a journey of culture you will read in the plates placed on some facades and texts the mere flat. At that point still enjoying until the Paseo del Prado, cross the square and you'll be fine in the Museo del Prado, which for 14 € adult general admission (seniors and students preferred) you know, depending on your level of detail, in not less four hours a datum: Monday (if not other days too) at 6: PM to 8:00 PM Free, but without a guide, but you can have virtual audio support which questions once inside. If you arrive early, you can walk around the museum where you will find The Botanic Gardens, The Church of Los Jerónimos, Hotel Ritz, The Royal Academy of Language and many other sites. It's an adventure. Enjoy ... ''

Qué decir de la calle fuencarral

Decidimos viajar a Madrid en grupo familiar y el azar nos llevó a elegir un hostal, céntrico, justo en la calle Fuencarral. Salir a conocer, comprar y regresar muy tarde y cansados se convirtió en la rutina durante ocho días. Luego de un día, estuvimos seguros que la elección de la zona fue la mejor. Desde Fuencarral caminas y tienes cerca todo: La Puerta del Sol, La Plaza Mayor, estaciones de Metro Gran Vía, Sol y Tribunal que te llevan desde esa línea 1 a conexiones con la red de Cercanías y en Atocha-Renfe a tomar otros destinos en el Tren Ave de alta velocidad.
Si un día amaneces con ansias de cultura, paseas por la Fuencarral hasta la Puerta del Sol que atraviesas hasta llegar a la Calle de las Huertas, la cual te llevará por un recorrido de cultura que leerás en las placas colocadas en algunas fachadas y textos en el mero piso. En ese punto sigue disfrutando hasta llegar al Paseo del Prado, cruzas la bella plaza y estarás en el Museo del Prado que por 14 € entrada general de adultos ( tercera edad y estudiantes preferencial) podrás conocer, según tu nivel de detalle, en no menos de cuatro horas; un dato: Lunes ( no se si otros días también) a las 6:PM y hasta las 8:00 PM gratis, pero sin guía, aunque puedes contar con ayuda virtual en audio por la que preguntas una vez adentro.
Si llegas temprano, puedes caminar en los alrededores del Museo donde encontrarás El jardín botánico, La Iglesia de Los Jerónimos, el Hotel Ritz, La Real Academia de la Lengua y muchos otros sitios. Es una aventura. Disfruten...

I do not know if I will but I wish with all my might.

No tengo niguna foto de la calle Fuencarral, pero si unos grandes recuerdos.No vivo en Madrid
desde hace más de 30 años, pero cuándo era pequeña e iba al colegio pasaba todos los días
por ella. Ya había comercios, sobre todo zapaterías, y los cines Fuencarral, y Bilbao, ya
llegando a la Gran Vía, mi mejor amiga teniá una panaderia pastelería. Dios mio qué tiémpos.
Ahora cuándo voy, la encuéntro distinta, pero......., me gusta.

No sé si volveré pero lo deseo con todas mis fuerzas.
