    Souvenirs: Unusual Gifts

    by elainecox Written Sep 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want something unusual it is best to look on some of the market stalls that ocupy the Ramblas from day to day. You can pick up some really nice gifts. Some are expensive, but I bought this necklace (A scarab beetle in Egyptian style) with chain for €6 and its great. There are loads of nice little stalls with jewellery and other articles to buy, which are all great for souvenirs!

    What to pay: Anything from €5 to €50!

  • Souvenirs: Plaça d'Espanya

    by firethorn Written Feb 25, 2004

    This spanish village is full of little shops and jewellers and one of which is a tiny little one where the man who owns it makes all of the jewellery himself. The stuff is absolutely gorgous, I could have bought the whole shop! Great for something to take him that you are guaranteed not to get anywhere else.

    What to pay: Very reasonably priced compared to some of the chains in the city centre.

    Art Escudellers: Fragile!

    This really is a tourist shop, with loooong opening hours. But you can get some nice souvenirs or Christmas presents.
    They sell ceramics from all over Spain, and they even tell you where it comes from. So you are able to buy something that was actually made in Barcelona or Catalunya.

    Prices are okay, some of the stuff is horrible!!!, other things are beautiful, and they wrap it really well to take it home safely. Or else you just by online...

    Postcards

    Some of the postcards

    I stopped doing photos inside the modernist buildings when I saw the wide variety of postcards reflecting every possible corner and detail of these buildings, both inside and outside them.
    Is a cheap option to buying those fantastic books on modernist architecture that you will find in souvenirs shops too...

    A modernist shop window

    In most of the souvenirs shops of BCN you can find many items with a modernist flavour, from lamps to ashtries, from notebooks to handkerchiefs...

    They use to be very elegant and colourful and make a perfect gift back home.

    La Pedrera tourist shop: Insight into Gaudi's architecture

    by bzh Written Feb 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    How to create bits of La Sagrada Familia

    La Pedrera has a tourist shop on the ground floor. It sells everything you could think of on Antoni Gaudi and his architecture.

    What to buy: If you want to go further into Gaudi's architecture, buy the book called "La Sagrada Familia de Gaudi al CAD". It explains the principles of Gaudi's architecture and demonstrates how to reproduce parts of the Sagrada Familia using a CAD system. Definitely for the mathematically minded people who speak Spanish though: I didn't find any English version when I went.

    2 bis: ceramics and lamps gaudì style

    by call_me_rhia Written Nov 1, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    gaud��-style lamps

    It's a souvenir shop, actually.. but it doesn't sell tacky souvenirs. It sells coffee cups, plates, vases, lamps and glassware - all nicely decorated. Most are hand-painted, too. The inspiration of the designs are Gaudì's works of art

    What to buy: lamps and ceramics painted after Gaudi's buildings or mosaics

    What to pay: Around 70 euros for a set of 6 coffee cups and plates. Quite expensive - but the quality is excellent

    Sangr��a... could be a great souvenir!

    If you want cheap books, Cd's, DVD, Videogames, you have to go to FNAC, it's a big store where you can find everything, and is not expensive at all!.

    What to buy: If you want to buy good souvenirs from barcelona, the tipical one is a good spanish fan, or a bottle of Sangría, or some condiments like "Azafrán"... chorizos and....oh!...whatever you want!.... just remember that Spain is in the European Union, so you have to pay with Euros (if you're not european or your country isn't in the union, always try to change a little amount of money in your country just in case of emergency, for example to take a taxi, or buy a phonecard)

    antique postcards



    What a better gift than a postcard from some exotic destination. Everyone regards a couple of lines from far away.

    You can find stamps in the shops that sell cigarretes- tabaqueria.

    I am looking for a particular store it is on the road via Plaça Nova near Barcelona cathedral the one with the airbridge and it is right past it toward the square. It is on the left if going to the square and it has celebrity dolls that look handmade in the window. I am wanting to get a Christmas gift and cant find it. It would be amazing if someone knew the name of it. THANK U!
