A winter break in Barcelona is an excellent opportunity for some Christmas shopping, as well as the chance to enjoy some winter sunshine. Barcelona has an excellent selection of shops, and during December you will also encounter traditional Christmas markets such as Santa Llúcia and Sant Eloi in the Old Town, where you can find some unique gift ideas.
The main shopping areas are Passeig de Gracia and El Portal del Angel, where all the main Spanish and international brands can be found, including some very high end brands. Between these two streets is Plaça Catalunya and El Corte Ingles, Spain’s largest department store, where you can find anything from jewellery to clothing to consumer electronics.
There are also two excellent indoor malls in the city – Las Arenas on Plaça Espanya, and L’Illa on Diagonal, both are reasonably upmarket, with some of the better chain stores as well.
As well as malls, department stores and designer brands, Barcelona has lots of unique small retail outlets where you can buy lesser know local made products, often clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery, that showcase why Barcelona is known as a centre for creativity.
Finally, food is always a great gift so don’t forget to visit one of Barcelona’s spectacular food markets such as the Boqueria on Las Ramblas for ome nice Spanish ham or cheese (they will vackupack these for you), wine or Christmas turron.
