Shopping

Quality, diversity and tradition

Hola Barcelona, your travel solution

In Barcelona’s shopping areas you can find traditional establishments alongside designer and luxury boutiques, craft shops and gourmet product stores. Passeig de Gràcia, Rambla de Catalunya and Avinguda Diagonal, the Old Town and Gràcia offer some of the best shopping areas.

Where can you shop in Barcelona?

Barcelona is a city with a great commercial tradition that has become one of Europe’s shopping capitals due to the diversity and quality of the products on offer and the cordial treatment of its professionals. In total in Barcelona there are 22 shopping areas where you can stroll, window shop, buy products and enjoy leisure activities.

One of the city’s main commercial areas is formed by the elegant Passeig de Gràcia and its parallel street Rambla de Catalunya, where there are luxury and designer boutiques, international fashion chain stores and even hundred-year-old establishments.

For shops catering to younger and more artisanal tastes you can visit the Gothic Quarter, where Avinguda del Portal de l’Àngel, and Carrer de la Portaferrisa and Carrer de Ferran offer popular fashion, artisanal products, jewellery and gourmet items.

If you cross Via Laietana to the Born district, you will find more innovative shops, small designer boutiques, ateliers, bars and restaurants with new gastronomic proposals, and art galleries.

To stroll in comfort and do some window shopping you can walk along Avinguda Diagonal, which, in addition to fashion boutiques, is home to numerous interior design, designer furniture and accessory shops, and shopping centres.

Finally, for a more alternative and local shopping experience visit the Gràcia district, which is a true paradise of small artisanal shops, Catalan designer boutiques and organic food restaurants.
