Shopping in Barcelona

A historic obsession with architecture and design has created a city built on style, most evident in its array of designer boutiques, one-off stores and shopping high streets.
Plaça Reial (Royal Plaza) in the Barri Gòtic

La Rambla/Barri Gòtic


This institution – a whimsical fantasy, old-time toy and joke shop – just off La Rambla, is crammed with Venetian masks, marionettes, theatrical accessories, wild costumes, yo-yos, kazoos, unicycles and other novelty items. The family workshop makes papier-mâché models used in many Catalan festivals (el-ingenio.net; Carrer d’en Rauric 6; closed Sun).


In the heart of the old Jewish quarter, Zoen is a tiny shop selling finely crafted leather goods made onsite in its public workshop. It specialises in men’s and women’s accessories with an earthy yet contemporary look and feel. Handbags, wallets, belts, book covers and satchels are among the one-of-a-kind wares for sale (zoen.es; Carrer de Sant Domènec del Call 15; closed Sun).
