Calle Serrano is one giant fashion catwalk. Between Calle José Ortega y Gasset ( and Calle Claudio Coello ( lies an area which leading firms and most prestigious Spanish and foreign designers display their latest creations.

A shopping spree in the area wouldn't be complete without a visit to Isolée an avant-garde space offering the latest from leading international firms (Comme des Garçons, Manish Arora, APC, Filippa K etc.), exclusive areas like that of the Taschen publisher's, and a Moët & Chandon glamorous champagne bar.

In 2010, all the stops were pulled out to celebrate the long awaited refurbishment of Calle Serrano. This major shopping area, considered one of the most exclusive in the world, has undergone important changes.

    By day or night, Calle Serrano and its characteristic nineteenth-century buildings form one of Madrid's most easily recognised sights. The trees provide welcome shade in the main avenue of the city's famous Golden Mile.
