Shopping Queen of Figueres

Figueres, a small town 140km north of Barcelona and not far away from the French border, is not only the seat of the Dalí Museum but also a good address for shopping, I was told. Charming, and twisting alleys which mostly lead to the Rambla or the Plaça de l‘Ajuntament, full of many little boutiques, shops and Desigual-stores leave their mark on the city.

Figueres-Frozen-Yoghurt

Near to the Dalí Museum, we came across a frozen yoghurt shop which sold the new fashioned ice-cream as well as toppings lie fruit, chocolate and cocos. We had to have a try. Enjoying the delicious ice-cream, we strolled along little bars which already had some guests in the early evening who were enjoying their first cerveza.

Figueres-Bars

Bershka and Mango were attracting us then, but also those labels like Pull&Bear and Stradivrius, mostly wanted by the Germans because they aren’t represented in Germany. Having filled bags but quite empty wallets, we got back home in the evening. By 28-31 August, visiting the Festival Acústica, we will be back at the latest.
