DRIFT Travel magazine - - Contents -

The shop­ping scene in Barcelona is di­verse, from high-street fash­ion, ex­clu­sive one-of-a-kind de­signs to col­or­ful and au­then­tic Span­ish ap­parel. Trav­el­ers will love Barcelona’s shop­ping line, one of Europe’s largest re­tail ar­eas (five kilo­me­ters long to be ex­act). Top hot spots in­clude Mer­cat La Bo­que­ria, the col­ors and at­mo­sphere are what brings this mar­ket to life and La Maquin­ista, the most re­cent ad­di­tion to Barcelona’s many shop­ping malls. When vis­it­ing a des­ti­na­tion for its fash­ion and style ap­peal, global trav­el­ers re­vealed key cri­te­ria in­cludes a cool food scene (52%), so it’s no won­der Barcelona makes the list with their de­li­cious al fresco ta­pas scene.

Where to stay: La Casa Gran B&B is a tra­di­tional bed and break­fast, ideally lo­cated a short walk away from Pas­seig de Grà­cia and Gaudi's La Pe­dr­era. Other top rea­sons to visit Barcelona, as en­dorsed by Book­ing.com trav­el­ers, in­clude sight­see­ing, food and beaches.
