In Barcelona, luxury and sunshine go hand in hand and the Catalan city has all it takes to please even the most demanding tourist: cuisine, good weather, culture, leisure activities and far better prices than in many other places. Of course, it also has some very special features that the most discerning shoppers may be looking for: international labels, Spanish firms of acknowledged prestige, great designers and outstanding fashion shows.

Indeed, there is an increasing tendency here to cater to the tastes of a new kind of tourist whose sophistication and purchasing power far exceed those of the ordinary visitor, content to walk down Passeig de Gràcia with hardly a glance at the display windows of the world’s biggest labels that line both sides of the street. These stylish new tourists are out to combine the pleasure of travelling with the unique thrill of shopping and they have discovered that Spain is precisely a top-class shopping destination for people of refined tastes.
