Restaurants and bars





This shopping mall is the only one in Barcelona that has got the permission to be open for the entire year in a really central zone of Barcelona. Other malls have the obligation to close a certain number of days each month.

Shopping mall inside view








Big glass ceilings  make the atmosphere warmer and also the windows on the sides allow you to admire to the beauty of the sea. You can do your shopping in this mall in a feeling of openess and a sense of freedom, contrary to the dreary feeling that many other indoor malls tend to invoke. On the last floor, the third one, you will be able to benefit from a big  open terrace with bars and restaurants while in the floors above you can find cheaper restaurants and bars like McDonalds, Starbucks, Pans&Company….

We hope you will enjoy your visit to the parts of Barcelona that we recommended !!
