First-time visitors to Blanes tend be pleasantly surprised when they discover that the town includes a fantastic shopping district.
Located in the old village of Blanes is a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and tapas bars.
Added to the mix are small squares, as well as the broad Passeig de Dintre. During the mornings — Monday through Saturday — the latter is the scene of a fresh fruit and vegetables market (check out the size and flavor of the tomatoes, bell peppers, melons, and more).
In the afternoon and evenings the tree-lined Passeig de Dintre transforms into lane filled with terraces — including that of the famous Terressans tapas bar.
There are many fashion shops, most of which are surprisingly upscale. And if you are into shoes, bring an extra suitcase.
