A shopping centre on the sea, Maremagnum was an exciting part of the project to rennovate Barcelona's port in the early 1990s. The attractive modern building is a favourite with tourists in particular who enjoy a sea-breeze stroll before stopping off at the 35 stores to bolster their wardrobe. Calvin Klein, Desigual, Mango and H&M are amongst the shops trading in the mall, and whereas the centre also had a reputation as a hot nightlife centre in the early 00s that is no longer case. Still for shopping Maremagnum is well worth a browse and, unlike most of Barcelona's malls, it is open on Sundays. Nota bene: although the name Maremagnum technically refers to the shopping centre, the term is used more generally to signify the area around it, which includes Barcelona's Aquarium and the IMAX cinema.
Lovely range of stores. Go when the rebajas are on! Fantastic views. You can spend a few hours here.

Maybe not the best shopping centre in Barcelona because it is not the biggest but still very nice place to go especially because it is right by the Mediterranean sea
