The streets of the Born, around Rec and Flassaders, are becoming increasingly popular with Barcelona’s stylish shoppers, while the streets and passages of the Barri Gotic contain something for everyone – the local confectioners are particularly impressive (the drinking chocolate is delicious). If you are intent on filling your suitcase with the latest trends, all major international stores including ZARA, &Other Stories
or Urban Outfitters, as well as smaller shops selling niche products like MiiN, a specialist in Korean cosmetics
, can be found on the 5km shopping line from the top of the Ramblas, through Plaça de Catalunya along Passeig de Gràcia and up Avenue Diagonal. And, as mentioned in our Barcelona Tips
, La Boqueria market is the place to go for fruit, meats, seafood and a blast of Catalan tradition.
