NIGHT TIME SHOPPING, OPERA AND BARCELONA´S LARGEST FLEA MARKET
INTENZ DIAGONAL SHOPPING
Earlier this year during the Winter, we informed you of The Shopping Night in Barcelona that took place on Passeig de Gracia, and involved all of the clothing and jewellery stores staying open until very late that night and offering special events and sales.
On 20th of June, the Intenz Diagonal shopping event will be taking place on Avenida Diagonal between Joan Güell en Entença, between 20.00 and 01.00. Shopping centres such as L´Illa and Pedralbes with their elegant stores will be extending their hours to offer shoppers special events such as cabaret, vaudeville and burlesque performances, as well as many other activities in hotels and restaurants.

If shopping isn´t your thing and if you are a fan of opera, you will undoubtedly be aware of the famous “Three tenors”, one of whom is José Carreras – Barcelona´s own world famous tenor. José Carreras will be performing during a new summer festival called Festival Jardins de Pedrables – a series of outdoor summer concerts. The concert is taking place on Thursday 20 June and starts at 22.00. Tickets start from 108 Euros can be purchased on the Festival Pedralbes website
ELS ENCANTS FLEA MARKET
Earlier in the year, we posted an article about the different flea markets in Barcelona. One of them was the Els Encants market, which has been moved to Plaza Glories in the Sant Marti district. You will be able to find anything from second hand clothes to cheap furniture. Construction has taken some time, but has finally been completed, and this market is now officially Barcelona´s largest flea market. From 19th of June the market is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 09.00 – 20.00 and does not close for lunch. Auctions take place in the mornings between 08.00 and 09.30.
