Shopping in Barcelona, a trend setting experience

By | 18 July, 2018 | 0 comments

As any big city should be, Barcelona is a shopper’s paradise. But much more than that, its cosmopolitan, open and trend-setting character make it a real hallmark of quality in the fashion world. Barcelona is fashion-forward and a stroll through its fantastic shopping quarters is an experience where you’ll always find exactly what you’re looking for. From all of the options available to visitors, shopping in Barcelona is an unmissable way of refreshing your wardrobe and finding the odd surprise along the way.

To start any tour through the most interesting parts of the city for shopping, you simply have to work your way down Paseo de Gracia. On this wide avenue, you’ll find stores from all the world’s leading fashion brands. Prada, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Loewe and Stella McCartney share the street with big-name chains, such as Zara and Mango, as well as other smaller, charming independent boutiques. Paseo de Gracia adapts to a wide range of shoppers’ tastes and budgets, with a casual and pleasant atmosphere that is another hallmark of Barcelona’s charm.

Another great urban route to follow to do some shopping in Barcelona starts at Port Vell, continues along Las Ramblas and ends at Plaza de Cataluña. Though it can be one of the most attractive routes for tourists enjoying some sightseeing in the city, it’s also perfect for those who want to do a bit of shopping at the same time. Here, you’ll find some of the most interesting and traditional shops, as well as other more modern and trendy ones that have gradually opened here over the years. If you want to try some authentic, more traditional stores, a good idea is to head down both sides of Las Ramblas in El Raval and the Gothic Quarter. A real joy for those looking to take home a souvenir of the city.

The route ends at Plaza de Cataluña, another area full of hugely exciting stores that extends into the nearby Avenida Portal del Ángel. Here, you can see some of the most on-trend clothing and accessory chains on the current fashion scene. Cortefiel, H&M, Pull&Bear, Tous and El Corte Inglés, to name a few.

Those who prefer to have all their shopping outlets concentrated in the same easily‑accessible space, meaning a shopping centre, won’t be disappointed in what Barcelona has to offer. In this city, you don’t even have to go outside to get your fashion fix with a range of hugely modern shopping malls available. One example is Arenas de Barcelona, a leisure complex built in an old bullring just next to Plaza de España. Here, you’ll find fashion and accessory stores, supermarkets, restaurants and much more. There’s also another well-placed shopping destination in the city at Plaza de Cataluña, where you’ll find El Triangle, which has 22 different stores under one roof. And in Port Vell, you’ll be able to explore Maremagnum, a very popular complex with spectacular views over the Mediterranean, which is open Monday to Sunday.

But don’t forget about the fantastic outlet shopping opportunities in the city, which are winning over more and more visitors every year. Barcelona has La Roca Village, situated just half an hour outside the city centre, with plenty of stores from all the major brands offering discounts of up to 60% all year round.

At HCC Hotels, you’ll receive comprehensive information on all the different places where you can enjoy some retail therapy, helping to make fashion and accessories the star of your next trip to Barcelona.
