Don't be fooled by the name - this shop isn't strictly an art shop. Yes, they do sell art here, but it's mixed in with a selection of souvenirs and quirky gadgets and jewellery. This is a great place to find small gifts to take home from your trip that are quite a bit nicer than the stuff sold on Las Ramblas. The shop's saying on their website says it all: "Barcelona, ONE shop, ALL presents." You really can find all kinds of presents and souvenirs here, so you'll be able to find something pretty for your gran and something obnoxiously colourful for your little cousin. There's also a room full of Gaudi-inspired ceramics, which are always a popular pick for gifts.
If you manage to search through enough of the rooms (there are lots), you're bound to find something that strikes your fancy. The art that the name hints at is found on the upper floor in a gallery packed with prints to take home, including a bunch of photographs and drawings of Barcelona. And as an added bonus, if you're already shopping, you won't have far to go to get here. It's right off Portal de Angel, a major shopping street in the Barrio Gotico. Read more about this street, and the city's other famous shopping districts, here. Or check out our guide to the best galleries in town.
This is such a great place to get souvenirs! They have all kinds of fun stuff, and it was easy to find gifts for everyone. Plus, it's fun to walk around too.
