Catalans are often quick to tell you that they’re not like the rest of Spain, and there’s a very tangible example of that at Las Arenas bullfighting ring.

Bullfights are banned in Catalonia, so the old bullfighting ring has been taken over and turned into a mall. Bet you’ve never gone for a day of shopping in one of these before!

Plus, it has a fun surprise at the top. 🙂

Hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s MyBarcelona, and I’m excited to share my upcoming travel plans for 2014 soon! I’ve got a pretty cool project coming up that I can’t wait to get started on.

Adeu amics!
