Barcelona is an elegant city, one of the most stylish cities in all of Europe, if not the world. From gorgeous architecture to an atmospheric old town, Barcelona just seems to ooze style. If you are in the mood for shopping but you only spend money on the best of the best, you might like to know the best locations for luxury shopping in Barcelona.
Passeig de Gràcia
Without a doubt, Passeig de Gracia is Barcelona’s smartest stretch of luxury shopping brands in the city. Start from Plaça Catalunya and work your way up to Carrer Diagonal, or the other way around. Between Gaudí’s La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, you will find a wide and airy boulevard lined with names such Chanel, Prada, Versace, Hermès and MaxMara. If you are looking for jewelry, make sure to check out Cartier, Tiffany & Co and Bagues Joieria. There are a wealth of bars and restaurants around this area where you can stop for a meal, and its central location makes it easily accessible if you only have an hour or two to spare.
In the area of Avinguda Diagonal that runs along the top of Passeig de Gràcia, before you get to the five-star Hotel Casa Fuster, there are many high fashion shops selling luxury clothing and furniture, such as the interior design shop Habitat, BOSS, and Rosa Clarà.
In this area, you will find unique boutique shops selling one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing, shoes, and jewelry. There’s also a handful of shops specializing in quirky home furnishings. Historically a merchants’ district, the area has retained its charm and is a melting pot of different designers and has attracted a few big names in recent years.

Carrer Major de Sarrià
Sarrià is a beautiful green and pleasant zone on the edge of Barcelona before you get to the hills of Collserola National Park. Known as the Zona Alta (high zone) due to its geographical location above the Eixample district, the district of Sarrià-Sant Gervasi is also one of the most pleasant and expensive residential areas in the city of Barcelona.
For shopping, get yourself and your wallet to Carrer Major de Sarrià and explore some of the side streets that are home to many small boutiques selling clothing and stylish home décor and accessories. This is a good place to find one-of-a-kind pieces made by local designers that you would be unable to find outside of Barcelona.
Sarrià is a beautiful area that rarely sees tourists. It is in a fantastic location and there are many places along the route where you can stop and enjoy the experience – lots of upmarket bars, cafes and restaurants pepper the area, many of which have pretty terraces and are located in pleasant squares where you can refresh yourself, while enjoying some quality people watching time. A shopper’s paradise and a haven all in one.

Not actually in Barcelona but half an hour away, La Roca Village is the perfect place to go to if you are serious about deluxe shopping but also like a good bargain.
La Roca Village contains more than 100 shops, each offering huge discounts of up to 60%. Expect high-end luxury brands such as Calvin Klein, G-Star Raw, and Diesel, as well local brands like Desigual and Custo. You will find all kinds of clothing, lingerie and accessories, sportswear and shoes.
