Where to shop in Barcelona
Barcelona is a big city where you can find many shops for everyone. After your class, you can go and buy things with your friends before you go to the beach. Here is a list of where the stores are.
1 / International stores
The famous shops that you can find throughout Spain and in other countries such as Desigual, Sephora, Zara, Stradivarius and more are all located around Plaza Catalunya on the streets Portal del Ángel, Passeig de Gràcia, Avinguda Diagonal and Ramblas.
On Ramblas Street, there are many sports and clothing stores such as H&M, Nike and the official FC Barcelona store.
2 / The vintage stores
If you like vintage stores, I advise you to go to the Las Raval neighbourhood, you can start with Carrer de la Riera Baixa and then go to Carrer dels Tallers.
3 / Shopping centers
In the city there are different shopping centres, such as El Corte Inglés and Las Arenas, but if you are willing to go further, you can go to La Roca with by bus in 30 minutes; here, there is an Outlet where you can find cheap stores.

If you want to buy a gift for your family, you must go to la Puerta Angel; the street has many small shops where you can find unique things to remind you of the city.
5 / To buy food
Barcelona is very famous for its market called la Boquería. You can buy food like meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. Also you can try many things, for example; natural fruit juices, tapas, cheese and many others. Choosing what to buy is the difficult part. You can also buy gifts here for your family like an Iberian ham or sausage.
