“On the one hand, shopping is dependable: You can do it alone, if you lose your heart to something that is wrong for you, you can return it; it’s instant gratification and yet something you buy may well last for years.” – Judith Krantz

Located in the central part of Eixample, stretching from Plaza Cataluña to Carrer Gran de gracia you will find a chick street full of prestigious designers such as Adolfo Dominguez, Loewe, Chanel, Yves-Saint-Laurent, Hermès, Laurel. Foreign brands, such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Max Mara, Escada and Armand Bassi stand beside Spanish ones such asPurificación García, Camper and Loewe. Even more accessible brands like Zara, Mango, Globe, Benetton and Laura Ashley.
This mall, located in the port of Barcelona offers the unique opportunity to shop on a Sunday or holiday. Is the only shopping center where you can find stores open when the rest of Barcelona lies. Here, you can find various shops of all kinds, likewise there you can not just do shopping but you can enjoy a view of the harbor surrounded by seagulls. You will find a lot of people because it is the only option to buy when you have not been able to do so in a normal business day of the week.
The Shopping streets are the true heart of shopping in Barcelona. Carrer de Palai is a major shopping street in Barcelona, one of the busiest in the city at daytime. It’s the border between the central districts of Ciutat Vella and Eixample, and runs from the intersection of Plaza Catalunya with La Rambla. Here you will find all kind of spanish stores like, Zara, Bershka, Stradivarius, Mango, Blanco, and also different shoe store, among other.
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.
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.
