Barcelona Blog

It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.

Grand opening: New Apple store in Barcelona

 

Apple Store
Passeig de Gràcia, 1
08007 Barcelona
932 95 05 00
www.apple.com 

Tomorrow sees the inauguration of the highly anticipated new Apple store in Plaça de Catalunya, Barcelona. The building that Apple will occupy, based on Passeig de Gracia, was formerly the headquarters of illegal communist organization Partit Socialista Unificat de Catalunya during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930′s.

Based on the same street as two of Antoni Gaudi’s famous buildings Casa Batlló and Casa Milá, the logo on the signage prior to opening gives a nod to the mosaic style that resonates with Barcelona. Pitched to be ”The biggest store in southern Europe and one of the largest in the world.” It is bound to be a key store to visit whilst in Barcelona.
