Welcome to Vortal City Network
You have the possibility in this city to take home many nice souvenirs due to the great concentration of shops and department stores in the city centre. If you want something typical don’t miss to visit the shops between the Ramblas and the Layetana street where you can buy some leather items, hats, and the famous “espadrillas”. For a first class shopping - that one of the latest fashion or design articles - you have to go in Eixample area,along the Avinguda Diagonal and the Passeig de Gracia; you can buy there the current vogue clothes, house and design items. Instead if you who prefer the huge variety of choice of
the big department stores you can go in one of the “El Corte Ingles”; if you choose that one in Plaça de Catalunya, once you have come out from this 8 floors building you can go along the Ramblas, among flower’s street traders and the pictoresque ”Mercato de la Boqueria”, a blaze of meat, fruit and vegetables. Barcelona offers also to its visitors and citizens many street local markets where you can buy interesting things; among all we suggest “Les Encants” in Plaça de Les Glories Catalanes, where 4 days a week you can look about used, second-hand things,new ones and junks, and San Antoni’s market, with foodstuffs, clothing, books and records. You have to see also the Mercat gotic d’antiguetas where you can find many valuable objects every thursday in front of the Cathedral.

You can buy and discover the latest fashion along Passeig de Gracia, especially in Bulevard Rosa, where there are many renowned shops. If your economic budget is not so considerable we suggest to go to Mercadillo (Portagerrisa 17) and to Rieira baixa (Carrer Rieira Baixa) where the prices are within everyone’s reach.

design things

The realm of designed furnishing is the Eixample area, which is a quite creative quarter. The other remarkable names to remember are Vinçon (Passeig de Gracia), where you can find he latest trendies, and Bd (Mallorca 291), where the articles are shown in a modernist building.
