Every single trip has to take at least one day to shopping: presents, souvenirs or the whim that you have been resisting to. If you are in Madrid or Barcelona or you are planning a trip to these cities, you should know that the options are almost endless.
On the one hand Madrid has an eclectic offer to be chosen depending on your budget and your preferences. The streets of Ortega y Gasset or Serrano in Salamanca district, are a reference of luxury shops. If you prefer a more popular area, we recommend walking along Preciados street, Puerta del Sol or Gran Vía.
Malasaña is one of the favourite areas of the most modern and alternative people. Vintage clothes of second-hand shops and modern creations of new designers have their place in Malasaña.
Madrid has also the outlet Las Rozas Village, located on the outskirts of the city. Julia Travel allows you to reach easily this outlet with the tour Las Rozas Village Shopping Express.
On the other hand Barcelona offers options for everyone as well. In Passeig de Gràcia you can see how luxury shops share space with the modernist architecture of the area. Parallel to this street you can find Rambla Catalunya, where you will find both local shops and shops of internationally known brands. From both streets you can reach another great shopping street: Portal de l'Àngel, one of the greatest locations for shopping in the city.
Barcelona, furthermore, has the outlet La Roca Village. You can arrive there easily with the tour La Roca Village Shopping Express.
As you can see, Madrid and Barcelona are two perfect cities for shopping. Choose the option that suits your needs and allow yourself a small whim to compensate the arrival of the month of September, the end of summer vacation for many of us.
