Crafts in Barcelona

Our favourite artisans in Barcelona

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia in Spain, is renowned for its rich tradition of craftsmanship.

Here are some of Barcelona's most notable craft traditions:

Ceramics and Pottery: Catalonia has a long history of ceramics, and you can find many workshops and shops in Barcelona selling traditional pieces. These include dishes and plates, pots, vases and many other everyday and decorative objects.
Mosaics: Thanks to the influence of architect Antoni Gaudí, mosaics have become synonymous with Barcelona's art and architecture. Particularly popular are the "trencadís", a type of mosaic made from fragments of ceramic tiles.
Leatherwork: From bags to shoes, leatherwork is another traditional craft you can find in Barcelona.
Textiles: Catalonia has a rich history of textile production, and Barcelona is home to many workshops producing traditional fabrics and clothing.
Wood carving: Whether for toys, furniture or decorative objects, wood carving is another form of craft you can find in the region.
Jewellery: Many craftspeople in Barcelona create unique jewellery, combining traditional techniques with modern designs.
Last but not least, because we're gourmets, you'll also find a few good places to buy food in this directory!
These craft traditions reflect Barcelona's rich history and cultural diversity. If you visit the city, I recommend that you take the time to explore the various workshops and shops to discover these wonderful crafts.
