Having been born and raised in Barcelona myself, I will second that post from Pete. Those are my go-to shops whenever I head back home for a visit! Bona sort! Good luck!

Wow, just opened their links.... looks like it's worth going there just to see their shops. Not even counting the possibility of a great TAPAS BAR.

Hell, I'd go to Barcelona just for the sake of going to Barcelona!

It's the most beautiful City in the World!

Also, if you happen to visit the Raval Quarter for any reason, wear a pair of blinders. Las Ramblas is the best place to search for some wonderful magic presentations, especially near the busy market.

I remember going into a shop near my hotel, but for the life of me can't remember the name of it.

Enjoy your trip. As Pete mentioned, don't miscout on the Tapas and make sure to see all the great Gaudi architecture. You'll see where George Lycas got some of his ideas for Star Wars.

Do you remember the name of the hotel or the district you stayed in?

Hey Pete...any chance you could do me a favour and get your friend in Spain on his next visit to Magicus to relay this message... that down here in Canada we like to get payed for supplies they order to run there business, its how we survive....they owe a large sum of money for product they ordered and we would love to see it payed and keep them in good standings before we go viral with how they run there shop there... and they will know who your referring to..i would be so thankful if you could do this for us.
Grew up near one of the greatest minds in magic the late Stewart James, in a town called Wallaceburg just 15 mins from Courtright where James could be found, time and time again he would inspire me to always be creative and just love all magic.

Having just been to Barcelona it's definately worth a visit not only for the stunning architecture that the city has to offer but also for the magic shops.

Starting off at Las Ramblas if you wander down the Carrier de Bouqueria just on the right is a shop called El Ingeniuo which is chock full of weird and wonderful stuff not just magic but juggling and puppets. Your unlikely to find much in here if your a serious magician as it's mainly beginners magic sets but certainly worth a browse. If you then carry on down the Carrier Del Call you'll pass a number of shops with playing card galore in the window along with casino dice and poker chips. Eventually you will come to the Carrier De La Princessa where you'll find El Rey De Magia a wonderful little shop stocked full of various magic books and tricks. The lady in there is incredibly helpful if you open up and show your knowledge of magic and let me browse a number of books and recommended works by Spanish magicians that I hadnt heard of before.

Further up in the more upmarket area of Passeig De Gracia you'll find Magicus another shop stocked full of books and tricks both in english and spanish. Nearby you'll also find Cassa Del Libro a spanish bookshop chain that stocks a number of magic books including the Roberto Giobbi light series in Spanish but reasonably priced.

Whilst there also take a visit to the El Rey De Magia theatre where they regularly have shows ranging from stage illusions to close up card magic by some fine upcoming spanish magicians

I'm visiting Barcelona in June, so I'm glad I found this thread. Just wondering if anyone has anything to add? Any updates in these 2 years?
