In Barcelona, you don't have to choose between going shopping or sightseeing. Wherever you go, you'll see that shops are part of city life. And while you discover unforgettable sights, you'll be welcomed by the window displays of leading international brands, modern designer shops and traditional shops that have been there since time immemorial.

Barcelona is a city of retail thoroughfares
The shopping route par excellence is the Barcelona Shopping Line, which showcases top-quality, leading brands from around the world; a surprising collection of cutting-edge shops featuring the latest trends; affordable fashion for young people...
The compact city model epitomised by Barcelona has boosted the development of the retail thoroughfares, located in different neighbourhoods and around Barcelona's municipal markets, that identify the city today and set it apart from other retail models and cities.
