Winter sales in Barcelona

Ever since January 7 Barcelona has been head over heels with the last of the great holiday traditions: monster post-holiday sales. And with the crisis have come "best ever" sales according to shopping veterans. The tele and local papers and are full of sales of up to 80% and even "below cost". Come and see if it is all true and shop your blues away in one of Europe´s premier shopping destinations.

Don´t worry about cool air and tired feet. You can experience one of Barcelona´s Top Attractions: the "Barcelona Shopping Line". Luxury buses take you up and down the great Barcelona shopping streets. The route starts at the Corte Inglés in Plaza Catalunya, goes up the Passeig de Gracia (Barcelona´s 5th Avenue or Via Monte Napoleone), crosses the Diagonal, and ends at the Corte Inglés in Paza Francecs Mariás. You pass H&M, Zara, and FNAC; Chanel, Armani, Escada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Sita Mur, and all the other international giants on the "designer route". Or you can do it all the old-fashion way, on foot: "rebajas con bufanda" (sales with a muffler).

Don´t look at it as taking advantage of the crisis, but as doing your part to start the money flowing again.
