Barcelona named one of Europe’s best shopping citiesShoppers in the UK who are looking for something a little different this Christmas should head to the Catalonian capital according to a recent list compiled by the Globe Shopper Index, which has placed Barcelona joint second in Europe.

Giving the city standardised scores out of 100 for five categories important to travellers – shops, affordability, convenience, hotels and transport – it was then aggregated into category scores and an overall score.

Missing out on top spot to London and sharing second place with Madrid, the city was noted for the quality of its culture and climate, affordability and hotels and transport, whilst it was praised for its “combination of physical beauty and cultural vigour”.

If you are struggling for gift ideas for loved ones this Christmas, why not go that extra mile and enjoy a memorable winter break in one of the excellent hotels in Barcelona whilst shopping for some Spanish goodies to take home with you?
