If you want to buy something authentic from Barcelona and want to avoid “I LOVE BCN” t-shirts or Gaudi-style ashtrays, La Nostra Ciutat is the place to visit! Posters, postcards, mugs, tote bags…. All made by talented local designers and artists.
When you walk into any of the three stores of La Nostra Ciutat, you will feel like you’re walking around an outdoor design summer market with products of different kinds made by artisans and designers. All the walls of the stores are covered with creative posters, such as maps of Barcelona’s neighbourhoods, Catalan culture and gastronomy, among other funny motives. It’s always hard to decide which one to pick to decorate home!
There is also jewellery, some of which with details of Barcelona (like the “panot”, flower tile of the city) which makes it really cool if you want to buy something that will remind you of the city, because it’s small, so it won’t bother you even if you have to take a flight!
I have been to La Nostra Ciutat when looking for an original gift for any kind of person. Yes, also for myself! The best part is that you are also helping local artists to keep creating.
