Fodor's Expert Review La Manual Alpargatera

Barri Gotic Shoes/Luggage/Leather Goods Fodor's Choice

If you appreciate old-school craftsmanship in footwear and reasonable prices, visit this boutique just off Carrer Ferran. Handmade rope-sole sandals and espadrilles are the specialty, and this shop has sold them to everyone—including the pope. The flat, beribboned espadrilles model used for dancing the sardana is available, as are fashionable wedge heels with peep toes and comfy slippers. The cost of a pair of espadrilles here might put you back about $50, which is far less than the same quality shoes in the United States.
