Who doesn't love a fabulous pair of ballet flats! This store has it all, and I believe I bough most of it. ☺ the quality is wonderful. Each style fits slightly different, so make sure to try them all on. I personally believe 70€ for leather shoes is a fair price!

She ended up getting three pair of shoes herself and as a result, I got my inner... More

When I saw the shop I new I just had to enter. They sell only balerina flats and although I rarely wear flat shoes these ones are exeptional. The variety of coulours and patterns is amazing and they are handmade in Barcelona. I ended up buying 2 pears😎

This is a lovely shop with a simple and delightful premise: they have beautiful ballerina flats in a huge variety of colors, styles, and materials. Each section of the wall is dedicated to one specific size, so you simply find your size and go to town! Many of the shoes were made of beautiful, soft leather, but they have just... More

I came across this shoe shop in Barcelona and just had to go in. It is so colourful! The leather shoes are buttery soft and I was seriously tempted to buy a few pairs but due to lack of luggage space, I just brought one of their shopper bags. Very good value for money. It's nice to go home with... More

I am a ballerina addict and happened to stumble across this amazing shop while strolling through the Barri Gotic. I have never seen a more extensive selection of beautiful, colorful and cute flats in my entire life (and trust me, I know shoes!). Any color (and the combinations thereof) you can possibly imagination to accesorize your outfit in a great... More

Very well made ballerina style shoes in every color imaginable. Very helpful staff. They also now ship outside Spain so no longer can you go home and NOT be able to get another color.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
