We had extra time while staying in Madrid and wanted to explore a different area outside the tourists area. We conveniently took the Metro out to this area of the city, about a half hour or less, it goes fast on the Metro. You have to walk a few blocks then to the mall. This is a very nice, modern, shopping mall with many, many stores, most of the popular ones here and restaurants etc. I loved the store Tous especially. We had a nice break from the crowded city.
