In this magnificent avenue, you’ll also enjoy the best examples of Catalan Modernism: Casa Milà, Casa Batlló, Casa Ametller, and Casa Lleó Morera. Look up! You’ll find interesting architectural design everywhere you look!

PURIFICACION GARCIA (Pg. de Gràcia, 21)
This designer from Galicia has lived in Barcelona since 1980, well known for her clean and feminine style, owns a store equally clean and organized, almost architectural, playing with volume, space and light for the best shopping experience.
ADOLFO DOMINGUEZ (Pg. de Gràcia, 32)
Adolfo Dominguez is a company with a long tradition dating back to 1973 as a small tailor’s workshop. His motto is: innovation without renouncing craftsmanship. He said: “I love to work with my hands. I will remain faithful to a constant longing for that breath of inspiration that is poetry”. He designs for
ANTONIO MIRO (Consell de Cent, 349)
Miró’s looks are always related to Barcelona, to the Mediterranean, to architecture, music and art. They are sober and pay attention to detail. He usually collaborates with other artists in his catalogues or runways (John Malkovich, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Mariscal...), as well as with super famous photographers such as Steven Klein, David La Chapelle, Outumuro or Vallhonrat. He sells his men’s and women’s collections to the best international boutiques and stores.
ARMAND BASI (Pg. de Gràcia, 49)
This autumn winter season, structured volumes and traditional tailoring in Armand Basi join biker references, smocking, balloon trousers and soft jerseys in a contained and subtle palette (grey, navy, violet), creating a super feminine woman with a masculine attitude.
ROBERTO VERINO (Pg. de Gràcia, 68)
Simplicity, culture, sophistication and modernity, unseasonable style, elegance and charm. Conservative. Classy. For men and women. Inside the shop, the space turns black for woman and walnut for men, with functional and airy modules that continuously communicate space.
HOTEL MAJESTIC (Pg. de Gràcia, 68)
You can have a drink in a lot of places around Passeig de Gràcia, but none tastes as good as the ones they serve at the Hotel Majestic bar, accompanied by a live piano concert every day (except Sundays). If you want to put the icing of the cake to your shopping day, have a dinner at their restaurant, Drolma. It is one of the best places (if not the best) in the city, but one of the most expensive, as well!
TOUS (Pg. de Gràcia, 75. Con Mallorca)
Since 1920, the Tous family had created a new fashionable style of jewellery, offering 30 handmade collections as well as a wide range of accessories: handbags, watches, fragrances, kids clothing and glasses. The well-known Tous Bear (we have seen it on every ear-wrist-finger-neck of the city rich girls) is not the only thing they have to offer to their selected customers.
SUAREZ (Pg. de Gràcia, 82)
In 2003, the Suárez group opens its doors in Barcelona (after Bilbao and Madrid). The 34m long façade and its more than 800m2 store shows the best watches and jewellery collections created by the firm.
JOSEP FONT (Provença, 304. Con Pau Claris)
Our favourite!!! This wide shop painted in bright turquoise and fuchsia with antique crystal chandeliers and hydraulic tile floors (typical of all the houses in this area, l’Eixample) serves as the best showroom for the amazing pieces of the latest collection of this Catalan designer winner of uncountable fashion awards, as well as some delicate bridal pieces and shoes. Unique!
SANTA EULALIA (Pg. de Gràcia, 91)
This is one of the haute-couture pioneers in Spain, founded in 1842. Now they are refurbishing their store but they have a temporary venue that is next door to the old one and has been designed with sustainable materials to be transient and to minimise its environmental impact.
Here you will find 770 m2 divided among six levels connected by a huge display case, separating men and woman luxury prêt-a-porter collections and bespoke tailoring. They also stock: Balenciaga, Lanvin, Celine, Louboutin, Prada, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu and a lot more.
VINÇON (Pg. de Gràcia, 96)
The best store for contemporary home design objects. Their windows, always original and creative, are a must. Have a look, you can easily stay for hours looking at each piece of their collections. They also have an art gallery inside, and an inner yard where you can admire the back façade of Gaudi’s house La Pedrera. The building they occupy is part of Barcelona’s Historical Heritage and was once property of painter Ramón Casas.
GRATACÓS (Pg. de Gràcia, 110)
Since 1940, this has been known as the most luxurious fabric store in town, even during the hardest post-war times. Their charming windows make you fall in love with this shop and inside... is like an art-decó heaven. This Catalan family creates the most charming and evolving fabrics for both haute-couture fashion designers and individual customers.
