  • Poor service in addition to being extremely crowded. Fortunately, I didn't have to wait too long after I got my number to be helped. However, the salesperson couldn't be bothered when I tried asking i...  more »
  • Read about this for a must stop to buy espadrilles! Well worth the 1.5 hour wait to try on and buy. Packed shop but great. Plan on being patient.  more »
  • I went at a busy time, yet once I was helped, I had the full unhurried attention of my attendant. She made many a trip to find a pattern and color combo that I liked and did it cheerfully. Once you've...  more »

  • It is a store for Espandrilles shoes with a decent choice. Lots of tourist shoppers - not sure, if this is really the place where locals buy. However, still to recommend to get your shopping done...
  • so pretty shoes and cheap price with handmade espadrilles. staffs was two middle age womans, they help us find a right size and kindly. love here!
  • Wish I could give it a minus "Star". We went into the store today about 11:30am. There was a young girl working who was locking the display case of €12 Alpargatas...which was more important then attending to customers. She was a young Asian girl and never even made eye contact. We asked the prices and if we could see the way the soles were made. She all but ignored us, walked to the back of the store which was roped off and never turned around. Absolutely the most rude attendant ever in Barcelona! When we walked out we noticed a man in the back as well sitting at a high desk, obviously the manager...he never even looked up as well. Save your time and go around the corner to a much nicer and better served store Lluis Manuel!
  • A great place to get authentic espadrilles, a great souvenir from Barcelona. However the wait will be long. Make sure you get a number first thing when you walk in, and if you decide not to get anything just give it back.
  • I went the other day and bought two pairs of shoes and am going back today for more. I got my number at the counter and I thought the service was pleasant. Lots of Americans in there. I would just advise that you have a general idea if what you want when you go in. They're really busy and will provide personal service, but you should put forth effort to be a good customer as well.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
