Neighborhood Shopping
To see some of the city’s most celebrated pieces of architecture, take a leisurely stroll along Passeig de Gracia. Lined by several masterpieces designed by Antoni Gaudí, widely regarded as the country’s finest architect, this is one of the most expensive streets in the city. In the 19th century, the majestic avenue attracted some of Barcelona’s wealthiest citizens. Today, the wide boulevard is a sort of open-air museum, offering travelers a chance to see what life in the city may have been like over a century ago. Not only one of the city’s major roads, but also one of its most important commercial areas, this thriving area is also dotted with modern shops, restaurants, and hotels. Take a look at our Barcelona vacation planner to schedule your visit to Passeig de Gracia and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • This was on our way from our hotel to La Rambla, so a leisurely morning stroll past the designer shops was a must. Breakfast, 2 pastries and 2 coffees was 12 euros, but hey, I wouldn't expect anything...  more »
  • Lovely square surrounded by very cool architecture, not to mention El Corte Inglés store in Barcelona.  more »
  • It's like the 5th avenue of New York City! All the big names are here They also have a Starbucks which was near where I stayed so came here everyday  more »

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.
