9 Best Places to Shop in The Pyrenees, Spain

Eth Galin Reiau

Fodor's choice

On the same square as the church, this shop has its own line of gourmet products ranging from locally produced pâté de foie gras and cheese to small-batch Val d'Aran cassis, marmalades, and honey.

Pastisseria Confiteria Cosp

Fodor's choice

For the best margaritas in town (no, not those—these are crunchy-edged madeleines made with almonds), head to what is allegedly the oldest commercial establishment in Catalonia, founded in 1806.

Bodegas Langa

This fifth-generation bar-meets-bodega (wine shop) stocks traditional wines and local products, but the tapas are internationally inflected and artfully plated, a testament to the young owner's training at the Basque Culinary Institute.

Cal Xec

This legendary sausage and cheese store also sells vanilla-flavored Birbas cookies, a local favorite. 

Carrer Major

This is an uninterrupted pedestrian-only row of stores selling books, jewelry, fashion, sports equipment, and more.

La Corona de L'Ainsa

Delicious local artisan foodstuffs and mountaineering books are just a couple components of this unassuming store on the main plaza. The owner runs a small but mighty wine project out of the shop: he promotes small local wineries throughout Aragón in an effort to preserve winemaking traditions in the area. His large selection of unique and exquisite bottles is well worth perusing. 

Mercat Setmanal

Held every Sunday 9–2, this market sells all manner of artisanal food, crafts, clothing, antiques, and bric-a-brac.

Mercat Setmanal

On Sunday morning (9–2), walk over to this lively weekly market that, like those in most Cerdanya towns, features local crafts and specialties such as herbs, goat cheese, wild mushrooms, honey, and baskets.

Passeig 10 d'Abril, 17520, Spain

Ultramarinos La Confianza

Founded in 1871, La Confianza may be the oldest grocery store in Spain. It's in the porticoed Plaza Mayor in the old town and worth popping into to see the tiled floors and hand-painted ceiling, and to browse the shelves stacked high with local products, from dried fruit and nuts to specialty chocolates and salt cod.
