Q: Please can you tell me if the shops are open in Passeig de Gràcia in Barcelona on Sundays?
A: The majority of shops in Barcelona are closed on Sundays, this includes the shops on Passeig de Gràcia. You will find the odd corner shop open selling general grocery items however most of the other shops are closed. However if you visit the Maremagnum centre in Port Vell you will find the shops inside this centre open.

The Maremagnum centre is a popular shopping arcade (shopping mall) that is situated by the seafront at Port Vell. Maremagnum also has restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a bite to eat and enjoy the sea views.
