Posted: July 14, 2017

Barcelona has so many shops, most are open Mondays to Saturdays, 10 – 9:30/10:00pm. Barcelona is also home to a number of shopping malls. Here are just a few.

There has been a lot of construction and renovation at Glories as there is a brand new shopping mall. It is still being built, but once finished will be great. There are two floors, the ground floor outside and then lower ground which is mostly covered. The mall has shops such as Fnac, H&M, Guess, Natura, Movistar, Oysho, Pull and Bear, Pepe Jeans, Sephora, Swarovsky, Stradivarius, The Body Shop, Tommy Hilfiger, Zara and Yves Rocher.

There is also a big Carrefour as well as large food hall, plus a number of other food chains outside on the terrace as well as a cinema.

Nearest metro is Glories on L1 and Glories on the Tram stop.

Arenas, by Plaza Espana (metro L1) this used to a be a bull ring and now has been turned into a shopping mall. There is Zara, Desigual. There is also a 12 screen cinema. The films are in Spanish, no VO (version original) here. Members of the Metropolitan gym have beautiful views of Montjuic the ground floor and the top floor are a number of restaurants and bar. Visitor can get 360 views of Barcelona from the top of the Arenas which is where there is a wide selection of restaurants.

I really like the shopping mall at Selva del Mar. There are three floors full of shops including Boboli, Calzedonia, H&M, Mango, Massimo Dutti, Oysho, Party Fiesta, Pepe Jeans and Superdry to name just a few. The mall is close to beach (you can see it from the mall) and is near the metro station Selva del Mar and the tram stop, also by the same name Diagonal Mar Centre is open Monday – Saturday from 10am to 10pm. There are also a wide range of restaurants and these are open until 1am Mondays to Thursdays and until 3am Fridays to Sundays. There is cinema as well as large supermarket – Auchan or Alcampo.
