  • Friendly small busy shop, the employees are friendly, give good advice. Prices remain moderate and the espadrille gets fashionable, with some models enough trend (with lace)! One of the first historical shops, remained in its juice: a nice visit to do even if you don't buy! You will also learn that the espadrille is of Catalan origin and dates back to 1300. It was also worn with 3-piece suits by the bourgeoisie, in the French riviera in the 1920s!

  • We went at a busy time - 4.30pm, they had just reopened after siesta. It was so crowded in the shop, I was with my 11 yr old. I wanted to come back later but the floor to ceiling vision of espadrilles...  more »

  • This is the best known place in Barcelona to get espadrilles in every color and several styles. The staffers are very nice, though they will kick you out when it's time to close for siesta. It is really THE place to go. The cheapest are 12 euros a pair, and they go up from there.
  • Cool espadrilles and obviously authentic. I got to pairs for 12$.. bargain I think. You have to do careful with the sizes but the staff can help.
  • Very nice original interiors, large selection of nice designs and competent device, unfortunately the designs are tether suited for Mediterranean (as the nice lady called narrow) feet...
  • This is where you go in Barcelona for original and authentic Espadrilles. Fantastic selection for every taste. Great service.
  • Service was good you might have to try a few pairs as they are handmade every shoe even if they are stamped with the same size are different.

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.
