A world-class shopping destination, Barcelona’s sense of style pervades everything from fashion and home accessories to food shops, markets, antiques and handicrafts. Fashion’s true home is L’Eixample and the streets surrounding the iconic Passeig de Gràcia. Here you’ll find boutiques devoted to the big Spanish designers alongside respected Catalan designers, such as the enduring Armand Basi and the celebrated and youthful Custo Dalmau. Barcelona’s old city – the Barri Gòtic, La Ribera and El Raval – are splendid places to set off on a treasure hunt, because it’s in these twisting lanes that traditions survive, whether in the form of antiques, quirky local crafts or retro furnishings. And don't forget about Barcelona's colourful produce markets and its many gourmet food shops, specialising in everything from farmhouse cheeses to artesanal chocolates.
