People may say that El Corte Ingles is just a department store, but I disagree. It has an exuberance that I've never experienced in any other department store anywhere. Good merchandise selection, too!

We had one last evening in Barcelona and chose to go to El Corte Ingles for dinner. Great selection, cold wine and fair prices.

I went here and bought various things as it is a truly big department store. The staff were helpful, many speak English. Good place to shop for some souvenirs, in the gourmet food section.

La Roca village (outlet) for best prices of brands. Exiample for high end brands (expensive). In El corte inglis (department store) in catalunya you can find everything. Diagonal and Arenas are good shopping malls.
