This arena use to be for bull fighting. Now they have turned it into a very lovely shopping mall. Located about a half mile from our hotel we found ourselves in here twice. Once inside it's very modern, clean, with five or six levels and a rooftop with restaurants, lounges and a 360 degree breathtaking view of the city. The first level has a large stage where they have live demonstrations.
The stores in the mall range from shoe stores, clothing stores for both men and women. No big box stores. It's a great place to walk around and shop, some very nice stores. I purchased a few items and every store I walked into the people were super friendly and helpful. It is touristy so prices can be on the higher side.
They also have a movie theater, plenty of food establishments, and incredible views. It's a pretty happening place and they stay open fairly late. Right outside the arena you can view the spectacular fountain and also many landmark statues. Look at the top of many building's and you see gargoyles and gorgeous architecture everywhere.
Worth a visit, very lovely mall.
Great place to go shopping or watch a movie. They have a mercadona, food court to eat and have dessert. Be a tourist and go to the top and check out Barcelona and take pictures. You can buy a ticket to take the elevator on the side of Arenas. I think it's under 5,00 euro to ride the elevator. They have telescopes and nice fancy restaurants like J5 which has a lounge. The Areneas also has a dim sum wok downstairs outside. There are many things to do there shop, eat and get your laundry done (dry clean and regualar clean). They do have a Fnac and Moviestar / Vodophone. You can also get your foot cleaned by fish which is called Derpa. 5 euro for 5 mins. and so on.
So there is many things to do in Arenas. And it's FREE.
