It may sound predictable as the quality of Massimo Dutti’s offering and classic style makes it a safe bet in the fashion stakes, but our recommendation is not because of the clothes! The building of Massimo Dutti, next to La Pedrera, is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen! Set across three stunning floors with its own private garden terrace and cafe, this is a haven for tired shoppers to rest their weary legs, put down their bags and relax on the terrace for half an hour.
The interiors themselves have been restored from what we believe was an aristocratic home and the detailing, carved wooden ceiling and furnishings make the shop a truly magical setting.
