Barcelona's Trendiest, Chicest and Most Fashionable Places to Shop

One of the greatest things about Barcelona is that when it comes to fashion, anything goes. Although Spaniards on a whole aren’t as fashion-savvy as their neighbors in Italy and France, there are plenty of trendy emerging boutiques and accessory stores springing up all around the city. Whether you’re looking for high-street fashion, exclusive one-of-a-kind designs or authentic Spanish antiques, Barcelona’s shops are as diverse as the people who walk into them. If you want to do most of your shopping in the same area there are a few key places to check out including: Portal De L’Angel, Paseo de Gracia and Corte Ingles. You can pretty much find whatever you might want within a two to three-block radius or with the case of Corte Ingles, in a seven-story building. For more exclusive shops carrying original pieces, hit up the Born neighborhood, and for rustic and hip check out the Gotico. Calle Avinyo and Ferran street in particular are lined with one-off, boutique shops featuring unique and fairly inexpensive clothing and accessories. 

And if you want to find something that you most likely won't see on anyone, go to Gracia neighborhood. The small narrow streets are deceivingly packed with amazing shopping.
