Las Arenas de Barcelona
One of the most iconic places to find a shopping mall, has to be Las Arenas de Barcelona. This former bullring was reconstructed and redesigned into a shopping centre back in 2011. There are many popular shops to be found which make it a great place to spend the day shopping! In addition to the shops, you can also find a gym, cinema, restaurants and even a Rock museum in this mall. If you want to see something truly spectacular, then we recommend that you visit the circular terrace with a 360 degrees panoramic view on the 5th floor. It is a great place to take in this wonderful view over Barcelona, and you can get up there using a glass elevator for only €1. If you don’t like to pay, you can easily just take the escalator inside for free!
