The mall is very interesting in term of shopping brands and the number of stores. It looks like a small shopping town. The mall is remote, it will take you one hour in average to get there from the city center. There is also a limited choice regarding the restaurants. Beware of the pickpokets, my cell phone has been stolen... More

A great mall in Barcelona to ensure your family finds all they need in a short amount of time. We spent 2 hours checking all the boxes on the lists. A very nice place, well worth the trip from downtown.

It's a great shopping centre. You can go on a shopping spree, the cinema is right there and you can have something to eat, snack or more substantial. Now they even have an ice rink so it covers quite a lot in the entertainment field.

There were tons of great stores here! I work at Starbucks in the US so of course they had one at this mall and it just made me feel right at home. The employees everywhere I went to were great and the mall is beautiful.

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
