Bringing El Born to Life – Where to Shop

There are some charming little boutiques and unique shops in El Borne, perfect for picking up gifts and one-off pieces. The main streets for shopping include Carrer de la Princessa and Carrer de l’Argenteria. Although these streets are great spots, the real gems tend to be hidden down a small street which you’ll stumble across when you are the least expecting it. It really is THE place for vintage shopping. Here are some of our favourite spots…

Casa Gispert , El Born, Barcelona Casa Gispert
This is a fantastic, old-fashioned delicatessen selling delicious Mediterranean foods. It still has the original decorations and furniture from when it was established in 1851 by the Gispert family. Products sold include coffee, nuts, dried fruits, wine, chocolates, preserves and organic produce.Address: Calle dels Sombrerers, 23

Natura,El Born, Barcelona Natura
