SHOPPING IN BARCELONA: PORTAL DE L'ANGEL

After having spoken in the previous posts about nice churches and squares of the Barcelona Gothic Quarter like:



today I would like to talk about one of the shopping streets in the Gothic Quarter: 


El Portal de l'Angel



First of all, I would like to explain that Barcelona citizens would prefer to go to the city center to buy clothes. Around Portal de l’Àngel, Portaferrisa and Pelayo streets, it is more likely to find a lot of fashion stores like Zara and Berskha. I recommend walking through this area, especially around its narrow streets belonging to the Gothic Quarter, where there are small shops with their own designs.

Walking along the pedestrian avenue of El Portal de l'Angel you will go from Plaça Catalunya to the cathedral square, if you turn to the left, or to Portaferrissa street if you turn to the right. It's a pleasant walk along this wide avenue because of the large number of interesting shops you will find on each side of this street.

As you can see, El Portal de l'Angel is not only a shopping street, it's a symbolic and nice avenue in Barcelona which leads you from the modern and lively part of the city to its peaceful and medieval heart.

Belonging to this modern side, Barcelona is nowadays the Mobile World Capital. For this reason in Portal de l'Angel is located the Mobile World Centre, where you can discover the latest in Mobile Telephony.
