Santa Eulalia

Santa Eulalia is Barcelona' s most prominent luxury brand department store, the counterpart of Le Bon Marché of Paris and Liberty of London. Owned by one family since 1843, the store's history is closely linked to that of the history of fashion itself. The very first Spanish luxury collections were created under the auspices of Santa Eulalia - the oldest design house in the city, which still offers bespoke tailoring services to special clients.

Today, a full bouquet of the most prominent luxury brands is represented at Santa Eulalia. The store is not only as a showroom of the newest fashion trends, but also a brilliantly organized space where, notwithstanding globalisation and the other side-effects of civilization, the spirit of the Old World is still alive. Wandering from room to room, it is also hard to believe that Santa Eulalia has only been in this location since 2011, having moved several times previously. The restoration of the building lasted for two years, under the supervision of American architect William Sofield. On the ground floor, one can find a small pop-up gallery that functions as an informative 'history of fashion' exhibition room, with the exhibits changing every couple of weeks.
