Barcelona is a city with a Little secret spots and famous places to go. Passeig de Gracia is a huge walk where you can find a perfect mix between the local stores MADE IN SPAIN and the luxury and international ones.
You can see the Mediterranean culture in the environment. There are terraces where people take coffees or breakfast and the clothes are light because of the warm weather. You also can enjoy Gaudí’s architecture with some of his famous buildings; “La casa Batlló” or “La pedrera”.
In Passeig de Gracia there are two tracks, the first one is for the pedestrians and the other one is for the bicycle riders. That is a good idea, and much comfortable for everybody. You can get a bike just there and it is call Bicing, you can discover Barcelona in your bike and after you can leave it in another point or get the subway, it is up to you! Right now is super cool take you bike as hipster and cosmopolitan style.
Food Made In Spain is the most well known around the globe and the gastronomy you can find here is fabulous... there are a lot of restaurants of tapas, Mediterranean food, Italian…whatever you can imagine is in Barcelona.
Another typical element that you can find in this walk are Kiosk, with tons of souvenirs and one of the most famous is the Barcelona’s Football team flag.
Also if you are a fashion lover you can visit with the most important brands in the world as Gucci, Channel or Furla and Spanish brands such as Mango, Zara, Uterque. I love walk calmly and see all the stores and little malls with the Spanish artisans as The Boulevard Rosa.
Is the perfect place to spend your afternoon shopping and taking a good dinner, and enjoy the Barcelona’s essence.
