“Shopping heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Easy access through the metro system, attractive shops, a nice environment and good restaurants. One thing missing though: storage lockers so that you don't have to carry all your bags in to the next shops...

“What a wonderful place to shop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

You want to find everything you look for in terms of food, clothes and anything else..mostly a pleasant shopping experience..this is the place. There is no other. Its so blissful to shop here that we ended up being one of the last few families to leave the place. There are even little places where kids can play like slides or rides etc including a 'kids care' near the super market.

“Better than anything central”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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?
