BARCELONA has always been at the vanguard, as a City, and undoubtedly, is considere one of the World's design Capitals.

No wonder then, that pioneer in the worldwide movement of midernisation and renewal of retailing, the City became a great SHOPPING-CITY in the last few years, with a very complete and competitive offer, very personal and original in lots of sectors.
(Fashion, design-object, typical products etc.)

To go shopping in Barcelona even if you don't buy a thing is a real pleasure for the lively crownd, the helpfulness and friendliness of the shopkeepers, for the shops themselves and for the easiness of a human-sized City where the shopping areas are easily identified, following the FAMOUS SHOPPING-LINE.

Along the "LINE" the shopping areas are easy to define: C.Pelai and Rda. Universitat are quite popular.
Down Pl. Catalunya, the maze of little streets of Portal de l'Angel, Porta Ferrissa and C.del Pi are full of little original and good balue shops.

What to buy: More chic are Pg. de Gracia, Rbl. Catalunya and adjacent streets as well as Diagonal, from Pg. de Gracia to Pl. Francesc Macia and on, through l'Illa Diagonal up to El Corte Ingles.

Of course you will make even better purchases during special periods, such as Christmas or...during the SALES (REBAJAS / REBAIXES in Catalan)

What to pay: whatever you have to pay!!!!!

Address: a diversity!
