The Chueca district is one of the most genuine and cosmopolitan areas in the city centre.
Within it and coming up to the Almirante area, well-known for its avant-garde and Spanish fashion shops, a great many shops have sprung up for the most daring and contemporary buyers.
The district bustles with life during the daytime thanks to small businesses that, in a very short time, have managed to become the backbone of modern Madrid. The shop windows in Chueca combine both originality and the avant-garde. Specifically, the section made up of little streets perpendicular to Fuencarral and Hortaleza streets is a shoppers' paradise.
