Shopping in Barcelona

From cheese and olives at La Boqueria Food Market in Las Ramblas to designer boutiques in the Born and Eixample districts, Barcelona shopping is in a league of its own. Serious shoppers enjoy late opening until 8pm or 9pm but smaller shops break for an afternoon siesta. The Shopping Line Bus is an easy option to travel from shop to shop with extra space for your bags. Take a break on Sundays when most shops close.
