Best Department Stores and Shopping Centers in Barcelona
You can easily find department stores and shopping centers in Barcelona. Like in every city, it’s very practical to find in one place all the shops you might need to visit. Some are really classical: you will find in those centers what you also find all over Europe, with the same brands and items (Fnac, Sephora, Zara…).
But some are more typically Spanish like the department store “El Corte Inglés” where everyone should go at least once for its selection of perfume, books, fashion, sports gear, home decor, household goods, electrical products, music, hairdresser, travel agency or like the shopping center “Bulevard Rosa” who offers more than 100 small shops, only Spanish brands, with an emphasis on fashion clothing, shoes, accessories and jewellery.
