Barcelona Shopping Guide – Gracia

Discover the Boho-chic Boutiques of Gràcia

We’ve already uncovered some unique places to shop in beautiful Born, now we want to reveal the fabulous boutiques located in gorgeous Gràcia. Keep reading for your Barcelona shopping guide to Gracia.

The Born is on the tourist track in the Old Town, while the independent boutiques and sassy shops of Gràcia are often left undiscovered by people passing through Barcelona. Here, we share some of the most unique shops Barcelona has to offer that are usually only frequented by the city’s fashionistas.

Gràcia, located towards the top of the city, is also home to Parc Guell and is one of the city’s most interesting and eclectic areas. This bohemian area feels like a different world compared with Passeig de Gràcia, and this is partly due to the fact that it was an independent town until the late 19th Century.

Full of trendy bars, restaurants and shops, Gràcia is the ideal area for those who are looking for something a little bit different – and for those who like exploring shops off the main tourist track. With it being so accessible from the city centre, there really is no excuse not to explore the boho-chic shopping experience that this charming little neighborhood has to offer.

Philo Boutique

In keeping with the originality and authenticity of the area is the uber-chic boutique, Philo. In the area that goes hand-in-hand with discovering new styles, this boutique could not be better placed.

With a strong 50’s influence, this beautiful space specializes in boho-chic, mixing vintage style with functionality. Bringing together brands from Milan, London, and Paris, their carefully selected ranges are aimed at dressing ‘women with personality’.
