Vintage bikes, those with a basket, traditional or electric... the truth is that this two-wheeled mode of transport is gaining ground on less environmentally friendly alternatives. In Barcelona and other provinces in Catalonia 450,000 people use bicycles every day, so the city will certainly not miss the chance to celebrate Bicycle Day on 19 April.
Barcelona is the perfect city for the bicycle: you can enjoy the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the magical beaches of the charismatic district of Barceloneta or an afternoon shopping. If you’re leaning towards this last option, La Roca Village is the place to be.
You can find the Village near the Montseny Natural Park and the beaches of the Costa Brava. It is home to more than 130 boutiques from the finest fashion and lifestyle brands, including ba&sh, Etro, Maje, New Balance, Ted Baker and many more, all with savings of up to 60% on the recommended retail price. And that’s not all that’s on offer. This spring the Village is full of nature, with customised vintage bicycles dotted throughout, transforming it into a magical garden. Experience an eternal spring at the Village and discover the colours, textures and fragrances of botanical installations by award-winning floral artist Nikki Tibbles.
Don’t miss out: La Roca Village in such an explosion of life and nature is a sight you won’t see at any other time of the year. So if you visit Barcelona, your mandatory stop is La Roca Village, a haven for fashion lovers, with impressive savings on the new season’s trends.
