Going shopping in Barcelona: it's a luxury!

Escaparate de H&M
We all love going shopping sometime but ... can you just imagine all the most exclusive shops, one after another, all along a pleasant walk? Stop imagining! You can have it in Barcelona! Barcelona Shopping Line is a city area formed by streets and avenues and contains a large number of exclusive shops of many famous brands like Loewe, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Adolfo Dominguez, Bulberry, Hermés, Pedro del Hierro, Bulgari ... and some less expensive stores like Mango, Zara, H&M, Massimo Dutti ... To sum up, all the brands within our reach. Here we propose a route, although it is better that you walk and just get lost through the streets of l'Eixample neighbourhood and discover many charming little shops that offer handcrafted products which you will not find anywhere else. The proposed route starts in Plaza Catalunya (a few steps away from Hotel Curious). Go ahead Paseo de Gracia and turn left on Avenida Diagonal. Then cross it until you reach Plaza Francesc Macià. If you still feel like desiring more shopping, the right choice can be going to the mall l'Illa Diagonal or to Pedralbes Center (very close to each other). Francesc Macia Square is considered the business hub of the city. However, it is considered nowadays the commercial link in the middle of the route of shopping online. This tour can be done by foot, as both Paseo de Gracia and Avenida Diagonal are very pleasant to walk through, especially now that good weather is just arriving. In addition, on the Paseo de Gracia you can visit La Pedrera (or Casa Milà) and Casa Batlló (both designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí), Casa Fuster and Casa Lleó-Morera (by Domenech i Muntaner) or Amatller House (from Puig i Cadafalch). These are the most spectacular modernist buildings of the city. This block of buildings is popularly known as “La Manzana de la Discordia” and they are a must if you spend a few days in Barcelona. Last December, Barcelona celebrated Además, en Barcelona se celebró en Diciembre de 2010 la Barcelona Shopping Night, which was a real success!
