This area was quite a strange combination of awareness for us. There's tons of middle Eastern refugees just walking around asking for money.

With loads of your typical shops, H&M, Zarra, P&B, shoes shop. You can also enter the two shopping malls which offer everything from cosmetics to sports to electronics and hardware. It's a nice walk and nicely lit during holiday season

A very busy pedestrian street with a good variety of shops. There are 2 Leondas chocolateres, 2 macdonalds but mind you don't sample more than 2 puffs of perfume in the department store otherwise the sales assistants will pounce on you and be most confrontational.
