Description of the Shopping areas:


Your apartment B367 Gran de Gracia street Apartment


I personally love this chick street with the best stores, Gucci, Chanel, Burberry or Prada, if this is your kind of store when you go shopping for clothes and things, you will love it and go crazy. Here you will find stores of high quality and then I get a quick bite at Natural Break or a coffee in the many coffee shops.


Hello shoes!!! Pelai is all about shoes. This small street can have you walking back and forth zigzagging all the way from the University to the Rambla for hours. My mother, who hates walking, literally spent a good 4 hours on this street walking back and forth when she came to visit. Of the many shoe stores, I must say that most of my shoes are from a little shop called Camper. This brand of shoe is from Spain and they have a style uniquely their own in addition to being amazingly comfortable.


In this big building you can find Sephora which is a must for make-up necessities, Habitat, a sunglasses store, a place to buy Hello Kitty things, a café/ice cream shop and most importantly, el FNAC. Here you can buy anything electronic. You can also buy music, books, accessories, magazines and they even have concerts right in the store. If you are lucky, you can get your shopping done and then catch a free concert. Make sure to check for schedule info./p>


Fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese, sweets, and nuts…everything edible is sold here in la Boquería. This open-air market that is full of little booths is a sight to see. In the summer, they sell the best juice drinks for one euro and they say that Ferran Adriá, one of the greatest chefs in the world, buys his products here. With how delicious everything looks and I know first hand, tastes, I believe it. While you are there, you should have a cup of coffee in the little café booths, or try the delicious falafels in the Maoz on the corner. As a student with little cash, Maoz is king.


The Rambla is good for its many novelty shops and touristy shops but El Portal de L’Angel is special because apart from having all your necessary stores in one street, many times during the year they keep a space at the head of the street for people with their hand made crafts. Sometimes people even sell rustic cheese, meats and sweets. The best muffin I have ever eaten in my life (Magdalena) was in the Portal de L’Angel. I’ve also found many unique gifts for friends and family back home in the states.
