About
Designed by the British architect Richard Rogers, in collaboration with Alonso Balaguer-Arquitectos Asociados, the Arenas de Barcelona Shopping Complex is located at a strategic point in the city of Barcelona, in front of Plaza de Espana and at the foot of Montjuic, the museum mountain, between the streets of Tarragona, Diputacion, Gran Via and Llanca. It was designed based on large structures made of steel, reinforced concrete, wood, natural stone and large quantities of glass to make the most of the natural light and fabulous views. From the perspective of urban planning, Arenas de Barcelona serves as the main gear of the axis formed by the Palacio Nacional, the emblematic building built for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition which now houses the Catalan National Art Museum, the Fira de Barcelona Congress Centre, , Plaza de Espana, l’Escorxador park, Tarragona Street and Sants railway station. It has direct connections to two metro lines and to the Catalan Railway.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

    Marvellous Mall
    We much prefer it as a modern fabulous mall compared to its previous life as a bullring. Its transformation is wonderful, preserving the outline and creating multitudes of space over multi floors. A plethora of retail and eateries are here. Cinema is in abundance with multi-screens available. It was grand ascending to the top, exiting onto the roof to be rewarded with stunning vistas all round.

    Nice sunset viewing spot
    We visited after seeing something on social media about the sunset being nice from up there. It’s free to access the rooftop if you go into the shopping centre and use the escalators. There’s a number of bars and restaurants up there too. View is nice.

    One of my favorite spots in Barcelona!
    This place is spectacular! On top of the roof is a 360 walkway that give you magnificent panoramic views of the city. There are a variety of restaurants and bars on the rooftop level as well. Inside is a shopping mall. Definitely add to your list of places to visit.

At first glance you would certainly not say that this is a shopping center however I find the idea of this project very apt because externally it has retained the historic architecture while inside the spaces have been exploited in a modern way.
There are several floors of stores, bars, restaurants and a cinema inside.

This former bullring is today a shopping, leisure, and cultural center which was opened in 2011.

From the outside, this traditional Neo-Mudejar-style building from 1900 is very striking.

Inside you can find many shops, restaurants, bars, and a movie theater. The Rock Museum has closed down, probably permanently.

From the roof terrace, you have great views.

We spent around three hours in this very nice shopping centre which was previously the Bullring. The views from the top are worth going to see as well. If you are a UK resident you can claim the tax back in the airport from many of the shops so worth asking when purchasing goods. The shopping centre is very easy to find and around a 5 minute journey from the Ramblas.

A good use of resources putting a shopping mall in a old bull ring, the place is huge with plenty to keep the shopper business, we used the mercadona often during our stay, the view fro the roof is awesome, not to be missed

Las Arenas was Barcelona's first bullring arena until it was moved to a bigger venue - Plaza de Toros Monumental, close to Sagrada Familia, and later totally banned.
Today, Arenas is a big shopping mall right on the Plaza de Espana roundabout.
From top floor are great views of MNAC and Montjuic.

This Colosseum-like shopping centre is a treat even if you don’t like shopping, because it has a free viewing deck at the top that affords fantastic views of the city. There are a few orientation boards showing what you are looking at, and handy telescope things that cost €1. You can get to the viewing deck by riding on the escalators all the way up, or taking the external lift.
