Winter holiday Barcelona
The sunny Barcelona, with its fashion shops and open-air markets, museum and restaurants, is perfect to take a winter holiday with fun, art and shopping. Municipal markets, art galleries and antique shops can be found in Barcelona alongside crafts shops, fashion shops and open-air markets. To stroll around the streets of Barcelona from shop to shop is to discover a world full of possibilities to satisfy all kinds of tastes and all budgets.
Barcelona itself is like one large shopping centre whose main axis, known as the Shopping Line, consists of a five-kilometre pedestrian precinct with wide pavements which is guaranteed to satisfy the most demanding requirements. Craftsmen’s workshops, exclusive shops, franchises, shopping centres and street markets are all part of Barcelona’s shopping possibilities. There are three main shopping areas in the city: Centro, Eixample and Diagonal.
The picturesque streets of the Born and Gotic areas in the city centre have a large number of shops dedicated to the latest fashion designs. The medieval atmosphere is perfect for a winter holiday. Shops selling the latest in clothes and fashion, shops dedicated to interior design with the newest of ideas, art galleries, avant-garde hairdressers and restaurants serving dishes which are a fusion of different tastes are just some of the establishments to be found in Born quarter, a bohemian, multi-cultural neighboured that is always bubbling with life. Likewise, a stroll through the cobbled streets of the Gotic quarter in the heart of the city will allow you to enjoy an infinity of shop windows combining tradition and modernity. Both the antique and crafts shops near the Cathedral, and the stalls selling birds and flowers in La Rambla or the large franchises and shopping centres in the plaça Catalunya and the avenida Portal de l’Àngel, awaken the visitors’ interest and are an excellent place to go shopping in this historic part of Barcelona.
The most exclusive shops of the city are to be found in the straight avenues and modern architecture around the passeig de Gràcia and the Rambla de Catalunya, the heart of the Eixample district. Exclusive national and international fashion designers, exquisite jewellers, prestigious art galleries, specialist bookshops and shops selling all kinds of gifts can be found alongside modern restaurants and cafeterias in an elegant and bourgeois atmosphere.
Part of the Diagonal extends from the passeig de Gràcia to the plaça Francesc Macià, and this is the home of business and commerce in the city.
