Experience the delights of the El Corte Ingles shopping centre

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

If you’re a shopaholic then being on holiday is not going to stop you; in fact, what better excuse than having to explore all those new shops. In fact, even if shopping isn’t top of your list of must-do things, shopping on holiday seems so much more exciting because you’re soaking up the atmosphere of another culture as well.

So what could be better than visiting the El Corte Ingles shopping centre whilst on your Barcelona city break? Everything you could possibly want (including those things that you didn't realise you craved!) can be found all under one roof, which means that you can stroll at your leisure, without having to worry about looking for somewhere else to meet your needs.

Situated in the Placa Catalunya district of the city, this shopping district is just near the metro, which makes getting there a doddle – just look for Catalunya (Green Line, L3).
