Despite the hurly-burly of tourism that unfolds around you at almost every street corner, there are many worthwhile shopping opportunities. Some of the best involve handmade artifacts -- ceramics, hand-tooled leather, woodcarvings, ornamental boxes, candleholders, and small-scale mosaics. One of the best all-purpose shops is Fran Holuba, Calle Jaime Segarra 16 (tel. 96-524-45-95), which carries examples of each of the major artisanal forms described above. For general merchandise, head for the town's largest department store, El Corte Inglés, Av. Maison Nave 53 (tel. 96-592-50-01).
