El Corte Ingles is a large department store at Plaza Catalunya. This is the perfect one stop shopping place.

If you're going to be near Ramblas El Corte Inglés is a good option but a bit pricy. There isn't a mall itself in that area, but Portaferrisa street is a very popular shopping street, and you'll find there lots of Inditex stores (Inditex is the company that owns Zara and lots of other spanish clothes stores)

If you move a little further I recommend Diagona Mar mall.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Parc Guell

by IceBear7

The most wonderful thing was sitting on one of the coloful arty benches, in the sunshine, thinking of Gaudi and how he lived his dreams and turned them into art.

It will takes years of more and more visits to this parc to disover every inch of the bench and to watch the city from above.

Unusual Gargoyles

by nicolettart

Don't miss the delightful details, like this turtle at the base of a column of the Sagrada Familia. I recall spending time climbing the towers (not for the claustrophobic!) and being surprised along the way by the carvings and sculptures.

Motorcycles everywhere!

by seamandrew

Seems like a large number of Barcelonians choose the motorcycle over the automobile. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Not only is the motorcycle much more feul efficient (considering the cost of fuel in Europe, that is no laughing matter!), but the weather in Barcelona is generally mild all year so it makes for a perfect selection.

You will literally find these parked all over the city. If you can drive one, I might suggest renting one to explore the city. I don't drive them so I didn't try it.

Museu de l'Erotica

by FruitLover

"MANIFEST
All human beings are born with a potential for sexual conduct; the particular type of conduct of each person depends on the interaction of the environment (opportunity) and on the genes (the genetic content).
All human beings have the capacity to respond in a positive way in the event of an erotic-sexual stimulus, of which ever nature it may be or from who ever it may come from.

There isn't only one given form of "natural" sexuality which is biologically given, but there is a whole spectrum of sexual possibilities, there is a great diversification, which gives rise to a variety of sexual practices......
.......Sex is not a fatality but a possibility for creative life. For this matter, we shouldn't try to reduce the human sexual diversity to a uniform way of behaving "correctly". It's necessary for us to defend sexual diversity and social pluralism, a pluralism where by new styles of life can fit in, and different desires and different moralities can be recognised."
Don Armand de Fluvin i Escorsa - 1997

Museum of Chocolate (museu de la xocolata)[II]

by FruitLover

How did chocolate get to Europe?
Barcelona, entry port of chocolate into Europe.

The first shipment of cacao left with 'viento chcolatero'("chocolate wind" - name given in Mexico to the most favourable to navigate northern breezes) and arrived to Spain starting in 1520, a year after the arrival of Corte's to Mexico. A cistercian monk shipped it along with the chocolate recipe to the abbot of the Monasterio de Piedra in Aragon.
