Plaza de las Salesas is a small square behind the busy calle Génova, practically right next to the Plaza de Colón and the Paseo de la Castellana. However, this tree-filled square oozes calm and tranquillity. One of Madrid's most popular shopping routes starts here (the so-called Soho of Madrid) along calles de Conde de Xiquena, Argensola, Almirante, Bárbara de Braganza and Fernando VI. This area blends internationally renowned designer stores, little independent boutiques, souvenir shops and excellent cafés with historic terraces. And all of this with a sophisticated, exclusive vibe. You'll chance upon shops such as Nice Things (one of the most popular Spanish chains of recent times), See by Chloé, Paul&Joe, Hunter, American College, Marc by Marc Jacobs (which opened in 2008 in nº 2 Marqués de la Ensenada which resulted in people calling this area the Soho of Madrid).
