One of the largest shopping centres in Barcelona, the Diagonal Mar is located in the Poblenou district by the beach, where the Avenida Diagnoal meets the sea. It’s home to a large range of high-street and designer labels for men, women and children, as well as homeware, cosmetics and accessories. The food hall has everything from suhshi to burgers, Spanish tapas to German beer-garten food and more – many of which are open until 1am most days of the week. The shopping centre can easily be accessed from the city centre by bus, metro and even tram line.
Located in the heart of the city’s financial district and home to many of the city’s wealthiest residents, the Pedralbes Centre is an upmarket shopping centre home to a number of designer boutiques and big labels. Open since 1989, it has always prided itself on offering an alternative to the high-street and pioneering new brands with a different approach to shopping. It’s also famous for its Christmas displays and the ice-rink that pops up each year much to the delight of younger shoppers.
