Casa Gispert, famous traditional shops in Barcelona

Casa Gispert is one of those mythical establishments that has truly stood the test of time and paid witness to all of Barcelona’s history and changes since 1851. Right in the heart of Barcelona at 23 Sombrerers, you’ll find all kinds of colonial goods, including the likes of nuts, dried fruits, coffee, tea, cocoa, spices, like vanilla, cinnamon, saffron… all while conserving the same traditional design and appearance since they first opened their doors all those years ago!

Today, in addition to these many wonderful products, they’ve evolved to offer a range of organic produce, including special olive oils, nougat, honeys and jams, which are perfect for making up hampers, gift baskets and souvenirs.
