Sundays are synonymous with rest and lazing around for most people in many parts of the world. After being hard at work during the week, a day of rest seems well deserved. Unfortunately, this also means that many shops are closed on these days. In Barcelona, most shops and shopping malls are not open for business on Sundays except for souvenir shops in the center, restaurants, cafes, bars, and cinemas. However, you have no reason to worry because if you have an emergency or need to do some last minute shopping before leaving Barcelona, there are a few shopping malls which remain open on Sundays.
