Herboristeria del Rei

Cosmetics in La Rambla & Barri Gòtic

Once patronised by Queen Isabel II, this timeless corner store flogs all sorts of weird and wonderful herbs, spices and medicinal plants. It’s been doing so since 1823 and the decor (with stained glass and watercolour landscapes) has barely changed since the 1860s – some of the products have, however, and nowadays you’ll find everything from fragrant soaps to massage oils.

Film director Tom Tykwer shot scenes from Perfume: The Story of a Murderer here.
