“Better than anything central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

This centre is a bit out of the way, but if your better half is after some good shopping, this is the place to visit. Large Zara, Mango, Apple and all the others you'd expect. Free wifi is a plus, like most Barcelona shopping centres.

“A shopping-center you find anything?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

In the La Maquinista you will find a big shopping-center and a place to spend time in restaurants, cinema, some bars and game halls. A place which is definitely occupied by spaniards - you don't will find tourists. The best hour for shopping is from Monday to Friday at 10.00am. Its the time the shops open and the center isn't crowded. In the evening and on Saturday you will find it crowded by masses of people. Shops are open normally till 10pm. Big, wide, all the things you expect in a shopping-center are there - what you want more?

“Boring shopping centre with nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Boring shopping centre with all the same stuff you get in the city centre. The only really unique place is the apple centre where they possibly have the worst service in the world. If Steve Jobs had a plan for Apple it certainly wasn't this.

If you need to find another Zara because along with jack jones because they are so hard to find head here.

Seriously parking is ok but if you want out of hours shopping try mare magnum which is open on a Sunday unlike anywhere else in Barcelona.
