Gran via has many shops, thaeters, cinemas and restaurants. Walking down Gran Via you see some outstanding piecesof Modernity architecture. the following ones should not be missed. 1. Edificio al Estrella (on eof the first buldings build as ecclectisism with a touch of neo-classism) 2. La gran Pena (in it is a men-club situated, Franco also wanted to become a member of the club which was a cause for much exitemen) 3. Museo Chicot. (art-deco building now huosing a cocktail bar, very poular amongst celebrities like Sinatra and Dali) 4. Edifificio Grassy ( named after the jewelry shop situated at ground floor, specialized in watches. this builkding is one of the most strking ones. it also contains a museum that exibites very rare watches that have belonged to royalties all over Europe). 5. Telefonica (my favourite oin. its a building in 30's Manhattan style, the tower is 80 meters high and its a striking feature of Madrid. It contains nowadays exibitions and there is a permanent exibition on artefacts dealing with telecommunications.)

Address: One of the busiest and more touristic
