Barcelona Shops & Markets

Barcelona is Spain's capital of culture and fashion. There are a lot of shopping malls, modern designer shops, traditional shops, weekend markets and especially the streets that can be considered as they were dedicated just only for shopping in Barcelona.

From popular outdoor markets, antique and handicraft shops, to designer establishments and modern department stores; shopping is one of the major attraction in Barcelona. Barcelona’s shopping line is a 5 kilometer route that lies from the Port Vell to the uptown part of Diagonal, and along La Rambla through the Eixample's modernist area and historic center.

Street stores in Las Ramblas, the Ribera, Plaça de Catalunya, Passeig de Grŕcia, Diagonal and local shops in Graciá worth visiting. Barcelona has everything for every budget and style.

 
 

Shops close for lunch break between 01.30-02.00 p.m. and open again between 04.00-05.00 p.m. and stay open until 08.00-08.30 p.m.

Popular items which travelers would love take back from the city include Barcelona souvenirs at the La Rambla street, the Catalan crafts (artesania) at the Centre Catala d'Artesania, antique shops at Carrer dels Banys Nous in Barri Gotic, clothing at El Borne district, Fresh cheese and olives at La Boqueria Food Market.

If you’re after markets, try the various markets at Barri Gotic such as the craft market at the Placa de Sant Josep Oriol (thursday&friday), antiques market at the Placa Nova (thursday) and coin & stamp market at the Placa Reial (sunday).

For the ones who look for traditional Spanish goods and boutiques, the Turo Park or Via Laietana is the perfect place.
