I loved shopping at this place for its supermarket located in the basement. When I went on day trips, I would shop here to buy snacks for lunch: bread, meat, fruit, and chocolate. Lindt and Valor chocolates as well as other brands are sold here and the prices are very reasonable. In fact, the Valor cocoa powder is worth packing... More

Visited the men's clothing department this afternoon. Staff member at first pay point sent me to another where the cashier was busy and brusquely told me I would have to wait. Found another where the guy casually dropped my payment card on the counter when he had finished with it. They may think they are cool. I think they are... More

It was our last night in Barcelona & it felt like we'd been to all the shops/stands on the Ramblas, but I still needed a few more little souvenirs. It was getting late & I didn't want to be desperately buying them at the airport! Thank goodness we discovered the souvenir department on the first floor here. Wasn't a huge... More

If you need ANYTHING while in Barcelona, go here! British Airways lost of all out luggage on the way to Barcelona. We made several trips here to get what we needed. There is a pharmacy and supermarket in the basement of the store. Very nice! Several floors of clothing, purses, make-up, housewares, luggage, toys, "fabric store" area! It has everyone's... More

Great - real good quality clothing at good prices (especially designer clothing and children's). Lots of high quality items, friendly and helpful staff and centrally located!

It is always nice to find something similar to what you have at home. It is a Macys, or a Galleries Lafayette. It has a ton of subsidiary locations, but the main store at Place de Catalonyia is large, and has most everything you could imagine. Worth a visit if department shopping is something you want to do. With the... More

Buy most anything at this large 15 story store. Our lucky find was the cafeteria/restaurant on the top floor with reasonable prices, and terrific view, good food. Right by Placa Catalunya. Be sure to go to tall building. Not smaller building that also says El Corte Ingles/

The score is the for the supermarket and not the departmental store. We stayed just off the Ramblas, and 15 minutes walk away was the lavish feast for the eyes in the basement supermarket of El Corte Inglis. Unfortunately, we only found this on the last day of our stay. I'm sure the prices are higher than the Mercat's (with... More

Was left for 10 min. at the fitting room although there was an employee who was standing 2 feet in front of me - she was tagging clothes & talking at the same time with another employee. This 2nd employee who was 5 feet away finally told me that I could just go into the fitting room. Then while I... More

We normally would have NEVER spent our precious time in BCN going to a mall, but we did go there to change our flailing US dollars to euros. They have this service in the 2nd floor basement of the store. Have patience to find it, follow the signs, go to the hot bowels of the store, get a number, show... More
