In the early nineteenth century, the enormous growth of the capital brought about the need for the Ensanche, the Madrid expansion plan, in order to modernise the city. More specifically, the current Salamanca area was planned as the aristocratic quarter of the city where the more affluent classes of society went to live. And it continues to be this way. The calle Serrano is at the heart of the Salamanca area, known as Madrid's Golden Mile and forms other streets such as Juan Bravo, Jorge Juan and Príncipe de Vergara. The city's most exclusive fashion stores and the most expensive and elegant restaurants are found here and you're sure to spot a celebrity around these streets.
