Hotels on La Diagonal in Barcelona aren’t hard to find, and you’ll be able to find a good option, whatever your budget. As Barcelona’s longest street, Avinguda Diagonal seemingly has several different faces, catering to different objectives. At its western end, university buildings surround Avinguda Diagonal, and as you travel east these give way to office buildings that form a small commercial district. Travelling further east, a number of shops line the street.

Barcelona is full of some of the best shopping districts in Spain. Here you can purchase souvenirs, fresh produce, clothing, flea market goods, and even furniture. Some of the districts are newer, born from the refurbishment of the city for the 1992 Olympic Games, and some are centuries old. One such district is La Diagonal, a crisscross of streets where you can easily walk from one shop to another. La Diagonal is the most popular because it is centrally located. Choose to eat lunch in one of the many quaint cafes or go to the open market for fresh meats and cheeses.
