Las Arenas – Shopping with historic value
Shopping in a bull fighting ring? Sounds impossible?! In Barcelona (almost) everything is possible!! In the newest shopping center Las Arenas de Barcelona you will find yourself in an old bull fighting ring, which is located in Plaza España, just in front of Montjuic with the MNAC (Museum of National Art of Catalonia) and the Magic Fountain. Las Arenas, which was opened in 2011, is a quite unusual place for shopping but since bull fighting have been banned in Barcelona, you can now go shopping on the 30.000 square meters. This mall combines shopping, cultural and recreation facilities, such as cinema, spa and a sports center. It is very attractive first for tourists and locals, first of all because of the variety of shops (115 shops on 6 floors) – from Mango and Zara to Calvin Klein and Desigual – but also because of its great architectural and its exalted historical value. You can find the trendiest brands here and besides that also gourmet shops and home decoration stores. Also the Barcelona Rock Museum, which houses one of the most complete private archives in the world and which collection got declared as a Cultural Heritage Property by the Government of Catalonia in 2010, is located in Las Arenas. Open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 22:00 Address Gran Vía de las Cortes Catalanas, 373 08015 Barcelona Spain You need recommendations for great Apartments in Barcelona? Credits Pics: #1 and #2
