The biggest shopping street. I recommend it especially if you are searching cheap clothes for children etc. You will find good stores (Primark, HM) along the road.

I don't even know why someone would think of 'rating' a street. I mean, other than walking Grand Via to get to, say, Retiro Park, or a restaurant, it's pretty much just a big, wide, long road. Not much to see here.
