Is there a better city than Barcelona anywhere else in the world? Trendy, sexy, vibrant, incredible architecture, the beach, the nightlife…there is just too much to mention as to why Barcelona is such a great city. However there is one thing worth mentioning and it is something close to all of our hearts, shopping. The women have a style that screams, Barcelona. If you want the Barcelona style, let’s go shopping in the Catalan capital.
Before starting off for a day’s shopping you first need to pre plan the route, something which should be done over a glass of cava in the comfort of your apartment in Barcelona. First on the list has to be Paseo de Gracia, here you can admire the latest fashions from the world’s top designers and more importantly see what the local women are wearing. Ok, so now you have an idea as to what’s hot in the stores and in the streets it is time to spend some money in Barcelona’s fashion outlet stores.
First stop on the tour is Mango 2, as you can no doubt guess from the name this is the Mango outlet store. Here you can pick up unbelievable bargains on last year’s fashions, bags and accessories. There is new stock coming in everyday. Mango 2 is open from 10am-9pm Monday to Saturday in Calle Girona, 37. Don’t spend all your money there because we have only just begun.
Next stop is the Burberry Factory Shop on Calle Valencia, 640 open Monday to Saturday 10am-8.30pm. Jackets and accessories with discounts of up to 70% are available. So if you love the classic plaid look of this quintessential English brand this outlet is a definite must. If the classic look doesn’t suit your style then you are sure to find something at the next outlet store on the list, Desigual.
The bright colours, crazy designs and unique style screams one brand name, Desigual. At Alma-Zen which can be found in Calle Diputacio, 313 and open from 10am-9pm Monday to Saturday, you will find a range of heavily discounted Desigual clothing.
By now your feet should be hurting after all this shopping so I’ll leave you with one last suggestion as to where you can do all your shopping in the one place, La Roca Village. There are more than 100 stores selling all your favourite brands with discounts of up to 60% less than a half hour from the centre of Barcelona, an excellent way to spend the day indulging your passion for shopping.
Now that the day is done you can head to your accommodation in Barcelona and put those new clothes to good use, on a night out with your girlfriends.
