Glòries Commercial Complex

The Glòries complex is an integral part of Barcelona where you’ll find a great choice of fashion, restaurants and leisure attractions. It has a retail floor area of 67,000 m2 featuring 130 shops selling leading international and local brands. You’ll find food outlets and restaurants throughout the complex, particularly the Glòries Market: a food hall covering an area of 3,000 m2 which offers a wide range of dining options. The Glòries experience is complemented by 2,400 parking spaces, areas where you can relax with Wi-Fi hotspots and charging ports, a children’s play area and click and collect service.

Glòries opened on 18th April 1995. The complex underwent extensive renovations in late 2017 to a design by Javier Mariscal.

The Glòries hub is committed to reducing environmental impact with greener spaces and environmentally friendly management of its amenities. In order to do so, it uses energy that is 100% renewable, collects rainwater for its irrigation and cleaning systems. All its lighting systems use LED bulbs to save energy, and the buildings make the greatest possible use of natural light. It is also committed to selective-waste collection, biodiversity, sustainable transport and working with the WWF. Not for nothing has it been awarded an "excellent" rating (7/7) for energy and environmental sustainability in its built environment and has received BREEAM® certification in recognition of this achievement.
