Local handicrafts and artisanal items to pick up on your trip

Bd Ediciones de Diseño (Carrer de Pujades 63) makes reproductions of furniture designed by Gaudí and others. Hardware shops (ferreterias) on the Rambla de Catalunyahave brass fittings—drawer pulls, door latches—in modernista designs. Browse the shops on Carrer dels Banys Nous in the Barri Gòticfor lamps and textiles.

La Manual Alpargatera (Carrer d’Avinyó 7) makes traditional rope-soled Catalan espadrilles. Luxury handcrafted dress shoes at Carmina by José Albaladejo Pujadas (Rambla de Catalunya 29).

Priorat and Penedès Wines
Wineries near Barcelona—like Jean Leon—have been world-class for decades. Good wine shops along Carrer del Comte d’Urgell in L’Eixample. Also, go to Lavinia (Avinguda Diagonal 605) or Vila Viniteca (Carrer Agullers 7) for great advice on cellars and vintages.

Local artisanal foodstuffs—sheep and goat cheeses, butifarra and sobresada sausages—are great to buy and try, or (properly packed) to bring home. Look for them at Colmado Quílez (Rambla de Catalunya 63) or Colmado Múrria (Carrer deRoger de Llúria 85), both shops are over a hundred years old.
