Shopping in BCN

Barcelona is a city that wakes up smelling of coffee and croissants and looks radiant and monumental late into the night. It certainly is a great city, full of options for everyone.

If the cultural beauty or the cosmopolitan atmosphere that oozes from every pore of Barcelona isn’t enough because your true passion is a bit of retail therapy, then no need to worry: the Catalan capital is home to more than 35,000 shops. Great news, isn’t it? In Barcelona there’s a wealth of unique stores, vintage markets, shopping centres, outlets and luxury boutiques. For all tastes and all budgets!

Shall we hit the stores?

1. BCN FASHION CHEAP

To keep up with the latest trends in fashion and beauty, take note of these streets: Calle Pelayo and Portal del Angel. Here you’ll find all the shops you’re looking for: Zara, Bershka, Stradivarius, Mango, Women’secret, Intimissimi, Lefties, Desigual, Promod, Tezenis, H&M, Calzedonia, and so on.

2. THE ALTERNATIVE RAVAL

The Raval district, perpendicular to the famous Las Ramblas, is bursting with colours and independent boutiques. On a stretch of just over 200 metres, you’ll find an array of alternative retailers: Gothic shops, handmade dress boutiques and a wide variety of music stores.

3. I LOVE VINTAGE

If you like vintage design and feel nostalgic about fashion trends from over thirty years ago, then this is your place!

And no, we’re not leaving the Raval. Keep on going past some very enticing tapas restaurants and mojito bars (maybe just one!) until you get to one of the quirkiest shopping streets in town: Calle Riera Baixa. Come and find out!

4. THE LUXURY OF PASEO DE GRACIA & RAMBLA CATALUÑA

New York has Fifth Avenue. Rome has Via Condotti. Paris has the Champs Elysees. And Barcelona has Paseo de Gracia. Right next to Gaudi’s exuberant Casa Batllo you’ll find the very best and most sophisticated shop windows of the world’s most luxury labels, including Gucci, Armani, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Rabat, Burberry, Versace…

If you can’t find what you’re after, then pop over to the parallel street called Rambla Cataluña. If you love the chic atmosphere of Paseo de Gracia but are looking for more affordable prices, then you’ll love this tree-lined boulevard. 


5. DIAGONAL AVENUE

Fancy a bit more shopping? Don’t worry, now it’s time to stroll along the six miles of one of Barcelona’s busiest avenues: Diagonal Avenue (Avinguda Diagonal). Here you’ll find everything you’re looking for in fashion, as well as numerous bars and restaurants. In fact, Diagonal Avenue is one of the most fashionable areas in the city. Don’t miss out!

6. CHARMING BOUTIQUES OF BORN & GRACIA

El Born and Gracia. Gracia and El Born. The purest forms of charm. Gracia, for example, has kept its small-town charm, far from the big-city bustle of Barcelona itself. This is one of the hippest areas of Barcelona where you can stroll along narrow streets to end up in plazas full of life, stopping off to have a drink or some food at one of the many terraces you’ll come across.

Meanwhile, El Born is a cultural hub and one of the oldest areas of the city. A neighbourhood famous for its cuisine and art. It’s a true pleasure to wander around and enjoy every step, discovering cute boutiques that you’ll fall in love with.

7. TEMPTATION ON THE STREET: FLEA MARKETS

In recent years, two street markets in Barcelona have become a great lure for retro lovers, with certain romantic touches.
