The street named Gran Vía
You'll find alternatives to traditional shopping here. If you're looking for shopping galore - this is your street!
This street is as long as it is important.
The Murcian Gran Vía appears between Plaza Circular and Plaza Juan XXIII, and this large avenue is one of the epicentres of the city's commercial activity. Although it's true that Platería and Trapería are the streets which focus on more local and traditional shopping, the Gran Vía is a shopping area which is for more standard and comprehensive shopping where you'll find your usual brands regarding fashion. In fact, this avenue even includes a shopping centre. Besides this, one of Murcia's advantages being a small city is that you can easily walk from place to place, so the surrounding streets have become part of this shopping area and have started what is now known as Murcia's golden mile. This modern area naturally offers a good handful of places to stop in for lunch or a snack, and to relax during a day of shopping.
