The old bull fighting rink is now a big shopping center. Interesting architecture set in one of the big open squares. Lots of traffic around it. Good place to stop for something to eat.

An interesting place if not a bit expensive considering the lack of information. The site is not used anymore and has literally been left as it were with the old bull pens and the fighting arena.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
