This is the street where the most shops for young people are found, the so-called "fashion victims". You can find shops like Quicksilver, Energie, O'neil, Puma, G-Star, Levi's, Foot Locker. One of the most emblematic spots of the street is Fuencarral Market. This market has about twenty small shops with various types of clothes. There is also a small hairdresser's where I never dared to go and some small bars as well. One can say Fuencarral is one of the liveliest streets in Madrid, at any time of the day you see people walking there. Most of them are picture-worthy.
Preciados street is one of the most commercial streets in this part of Madrid. Especially busy during the shopping season (see Christmas, etc.), it is a direct connection to Puerta del Sol and Gran Vía via Callao Square.

As a result, locals try to avoid going there during the aforementioned periods or they end up succumbing and going there to get the present they need. Without a doubt a place worth a walk.

Carrer del Músic Peydró (Peydro Music Street) harks back to the medieval streets of walled off cities, when artisans grouped together in the same street, gathered into guilds each side by side selling their goods. For in this street everyone sells the same. Baskets, objects made of wood, furniture, chairs, household items such as kitchen utensils, everything is made of timber. There is so much to choose from that you don’t know where to stop.
Most stores are not those typical stores with a clerk and everything well organized around you. They are half Workshops and you see people working behind to create these objects. Toys for children are very pretty. You can buy different types of wood, raw, varnished or white: shopping, say, a table or tray that you can then can paint, decorate, and customize to your taste ... or, for a gift, to me a nice touch.
Carrer del Músic Peydró is pedestrianized and most stores place items out on the street, making it feel like you're walking in a bazaar.
The Calle Toro is one of the busiest axis' in the city, above all for Salamancans, not so much for tourists.

The rest are clothes shops, opticians, shoes, pharmacies, drugstores ... Calle Toro is a pedestrian street and exits out of the Plaza Mayor in Salamanca, to the right of the front of the town Hall.
Do not miss the Zara store, which is an ancient convent converted into a store, but preserving facades and historic walls of the place of worship.
