Fuencarral is a commercial street that divides the upscale Chueca and Malasana neighbourhoods and caters to Madrid’s trendy world of modern fashion. The stores on and around Fuencarral are a hip array of small boutiques with a young, rocker feel that appeal to the city’s fashion conscious young people. Independent fashion stands dot the area and unique finds can be had for those who are willing to explore. The small streets off this thoroughfare are even funkier, with skate shops and second hand clothing stores offering buyers a chance to outfit themselves like hipsters at a low cost.
- Catch an art show or local DJ session at the Fuencarral Market, a great place to watch trendy Madrid youth stroll by while enjoying coffee from the centre’s cafe.
- Visit Madrid in June for the Gay Pride Parade that passes through Fuencarral and celebrates the colourful and diverse lifestyles found in Spain.
- Walk through the provocatively named Ugly Shop, where street wear and alternative fashion from cutting edge designers can be had at fair prices.
This avant-garde neighbourhood is well serviced by Madrid public transportation. There is a Fuencarral stop on the blue line of the Madrid Metro and you will quickly feel transported into a new world when you come to street level. The Madrid Airport connects to this neighbourhood by the metro’s #8 line with a quick changeover at Plaza de Castilla, which is just two stops away. Fuencarral is a fascinating area to explore on foot, as are the bordering neighbourhoods of Malasana and Chueca, so it is best to get off the train and walk at your own pace.
