Sometimes, during the winter, we skip doing things we would like to do because it’s so cold, windy or rainy outside. If you were planning on going shopping but the weather has been preventing you to do so (who feels like being outside in this cold weather?) why not try some of Barcelona’s indoor shopping venues?
Boulevard Rosa is a shopping gallery founded during the eighties, located in the glamorous avenue of Passeig de Gràcia. At Boulevard Rosa you can find shoes, clothing, jewelry, home decoration items and more, in stores like Zas Two Kwtra, Podivm Tanganika, Selvatgi Regia and Joe Morosco.
