Running directly from Sol to Gran Via ,Calle De La Montera is a longish street that to be honest is nothing that special really. It's basically a shopping street with your usual high street stores such as Vodaphone ,Carrefour and the like and some nice...More

Connection between Gran via and Sol. Tourist souvenirs, Africans selling from the pavement, food and prostitution. Ladies are working all day long on same street where police department is. It is absurd this to happen in the heart of the city.

I walked the part of Calle de la Montera which is a shopping avenue. It is like any other European city's shopping street - many chain stores, fast food, restaurants. Here - it is extremely crowded. Be careful of pickpocketing!

Our hotel was at the corner of Montera and Gran Via so we walked down this street every day that we were in Madrid. There's a lot of restaurants, albeit fast food and tourist traps, street vendors and stores. There's always a tonne of people...More

Calle de la Montera connects Gran Via with Puerta del Sol in the very center of Madrid. It has many restaurants with different prices as well as cinemas, shops, and convenience stores. Since we lodged close by, it worked out for us in terms of...More

Whilst makingour way up to Calles De Las Infantes, we walked through Montera and as shocked to find the pedestrianised street plagued with hookers. This was also accompanied with cafes of learing men and an underlying menacing feeling. We did not feel too safe there...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
