    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 »

    When my wife found out the Pope and Jack Nicholson get there espadrilles from this store in one of our tour books, she made me find a way to get her here. The only problem is when we first got there, ...  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.
