Where To Shop In Barcelona
Barcelona offers some of the best shopping in Europe with many great boutique shops, arts and crafts galleries, as well as classy design and home decor stores
Barcelona is one of the top shopping destinations in Europe, with unique boutiques, designer shops, outdoor markets, shopping malls, jewelers, and museum and gallery shops to suit every taste.
Shopping in Barcelona is a delightful way to soak up the local Catalan flavor and immerse yourself in the upscale Spanish culture and ambiance of the area. Barcelona is known for its beloved outdoor food, craft, and antique markets, and there are dozens to choose from. Visit Mercat de la Boqueria (known locally as La Boqueria) for a dizzying array of fresh local foods and produce, meats, cheeses, and seafoods, as well as local snacks and spices.
Mercat de Santa Caterina is a popular architectural destination as well as a thriving food market – don’t miss its vibrantly tiled wavy rooftop designed by Catalan architect Enric Miralles. For antique jewelry, postcards, silverware, and coins, visit Mercat Gòtic de Antiquitats, a delightful and popular pop-up market located in front of the gorgeous Barcelona Cathedral.
Barcelona Shopping in Las Ramblas
Along the famous tree-lined Las Ramblas pedestrian boulevard, explore the shops and kiosks selling handcrafted leather goods, jewelry, and clothing, along with souvenirs and snacks. Or visit one of the upscale Barcelona spas or salons to indulge in the latest in advanced beauty treatments, products, and cosmetics.
Located just outside the city, Barcelona’s La Roca Village is one of Spain’s top places to visit for a premium outlet shopping experience. Upscale designer and lifestyle boutiques line the charming, Catalan-inspired streets and feature luxury goods from Spanish and international designers.
