ShoppingShopping

You’ll find interesting shops in all the districts of Barcelona, but the shopping areas around the Placa Catalunya and in Barri Gotic are the best. Placa Catalunya, for example, boasts the gigantic department store El Corte Inglés. Opposite it is El Triangle, a colossal retail palace with a good perfumery and Campers’ shoe shop.

The Calle Avinyó in Barri Gotic is probably the nicest shopping street in Barcelona. You’ll find everything at the interior decorating shop ‘Z’, from kitsch to remarkable designs. Soda, Angel Gimeno with its wonderful range of trendy shirts, and Loft Avignon with its relaxed men’s fashions are all also situated here. Barri Gotic contains the small spice shop Herborista del Rei on Calle del Vidre 1. This shop has been around since 1823 and is a remarkable experience. Make sure you also visit La Boqueria on the way to La Rambla. This covered market has a fantastic range of fish, shell fish, crustaeceans and more. In the bars of El Quim and Pinotxo you can try fresh baby squid with garlic and parsley and an ice-cold glass of Cava.

The El Borne area is also a good spot for foodstuffs. Casa Gispert on C/Sombrerers 23, next to the church of Santa Maria del Mar, has been roasting coffee beans since 1851 – using a wood stove that is still in operation and can be admired in the shop. Dried nuts, fruit, cocoa, herbs and mushrooms are also sold here. Tot Formatge on Passeig del Born 13 is one of the best cheese shops in Barcelona and has a wide range both from home and abroad.

If you want to do some serious fashion shopping, head to the Passeig da Gràcia and the surrounding area. You’ll find all the biggest names in international and Spanish fashion, such as Adolfo Domínguez, Armand Basi, Groc, and the leather specialist Loewe. You’ll also come across Zara, Mango en Massimo Dutti. Gonzalo Comella on Passeig de Gràcia 6 is an institution in the fashion world of Barcelona, and belongs to a chain of shops offering a great selection of designer fashions and having existed for more than a century. Vinçon, the department store for interior design, is also situated on the Passeig da Gràcia (nr. 96). Definitely pay a visit to Colmado Quílez in the street parallel to this, Rambla de Catalunya 63 – it is the most renowned delicatessen with thousands of tinned goods, dried food and bottles in racks up to the ceiling. The range of wine and spirits is enormous, and you can also get meat products and sausage.
