One of the first major projects to redevelop Barcelona, the Glories centre is located at a junction of the three principal arteries of the city, Avenida Diagonal, Avenida Meridiana and Gran Vía.
As with most modern shopping centres, it offers visitors a variety of ways to part with their money, such as the latest fashion buys, restaurants and a 7 screen cinema.In the future its location will become far more key than at present as the development of this part of the city continues under the 22@ project, a plan to inject life into the Poble Nou area with new constructions that will house cutting edge businesses and technological companies.
The first of these buildings, the Agbar tower, has already been erected and has become an important fixture in the Barcelona skyline, enjoying many nicknames, not all as polite as London´s famous ´Gherkin´.If you are in the area and looking for the Glories shopping centre, head for the Agbar tower as it is found right at its foot!
Les Glories is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am-10pm
Metro: Glories (L1), Clot (L2)
