SHOPPING STREETS IN BARCELONA


Barcelona is really a shopping city, a paradise for those who love shopping. In Barcelona you will be able to go shopping walking along fantastic boulevards like Passeig de Gràcia or La Rambla. Apart from fashion stores or exclusive  boutiques, you will enjoy beautiful modernist buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí and a lively atmosphere.

These are the most important shopping streets in Barcelona:



Passeig de Gràcia


If you are searching for exclusive boutiques, then you should go shopping along Passeig de Gràcia, which starts in Plaça Catalunya and ends at Avinguda Diagonal. In addition to buying, you will enjoy the fabulous façades of some of the most impressive modernist buildings in Barcelona, like La Casa Milà or Casa Batlló (designed by Antoni Gaudí).

El Portal de l'Angel


Around Portal de l’Àngel, Portaferrisa and Cucurulla streets you can find a lot of fashion stores. 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.

Carrer de Sants


If you prefer to visit another neighbourhood of Barcelona, it would be interesting walking through La Carretera de Sants and Badal. This area is plenty of shops where you can buy shoes and clothes. Besides, La Carretera de Sants begins in Plaça Espanya, next to Montjuïc, where Las Arenas Mall has recently opened its doors.
