Shopping in Barcelona
Barcelona is also an ideal city to go shopping in. In the old town there is the most commercial area of the city. On streets such as Portaferrissa, Portal de l’Àngel and Plaça Catalunya, you can find everything from retail shops to department stores and franchises. On Passeig de Gràcia you can discover the most prestigious boutiques in the world. If design items are what you are looking for, head to the small streets in the Born district.
Other commercial areas in the city are carrer Gran de Gràcia and carrer de Sants, including the shopping centres such as L’Illa, La Maquinista, Les Glòries or Diagonal Mar, which is right in front of the hotel.
Do not miss out on the street markets, where you can find all sorts of strange items and bargains. Markets such as Mercat dels Encants, on Plaça de les Glòries, or Mercat de Sant Antoni are places where you can find books, records, stamps and collector’s items.
Discover a different way of admiring the city, as there is a shopping route for everyone’s taste.
