One of the best malls in Barcelona... The only Hollister shop and the only forever 21 are there! Even Desiguel shop is different than other ones all around the city.. Lots of other great places to shop. And restaurants to eat in The only 2 disadvantages is that it's a little bit long walking distance from the nearest metro station... More

We stayed in the hotel side by side with the shopping mall, so we had the opportunity to go there multiple times. This shopping mall is rather huge with many shops and for every kinds of prices (from cheap to expensive). It's very well organized and clean. Has a good variety of types of shops and the restaurants are opened... More

Visited on a Saturday morning at 10am in July as centre opened, hence easy to find parking (seemed to be a nightmare in open air car park by lunchtime). They great advantage of this centre is it had everything to keep 2 teenagers happy - Superdry, Pull and Bear, Lefties, Hollister. Also a really big Carrefour to keep the adults... More

I went there with my wife for shopping. The place covers most of the important brands and carries some local specialties as well. If you don't want to waste your time rooming around the overcrowded city this should be your place to go. Unfortunately leaving from there by taxi is not that convenient as there are not so many taxis... More

Visited this mall in the hope of getting relief from blistering heat. Too bad, this mall is open air. Shops that you can find anywhere in the wold, nothing remarkable. Even the food in totally commercialized. Not worth the visit except when you need to buy something you do not have.
