Founded in 1952, the Passeig de Gràcia Association is one of Barcelona’s oldest merchant associations of the country. Its aim is to safeguard and promote the interests of its members and to maintain the avenue at its best. Passeig de Gràcia is one of the world’s most renowned and important shopping streets, with an outstanding reputation both locally and abroad. It is unique for its Modernist architecture designed by such notable architects as Gaudí, Puig i Cadafalch, and Domènech i Montaner, among others. The boutiques of many of the top Spanish and international brands are located on the avenue, which constitutes a magnificent showcase of our city to the world.
One of the Association’s priority objectives is giving service to the brands settled on the avenue. We belong to the various municipal participation groups and commerce forums, and we help to support initiatives addressed to promote Passeig de Gracia’s international appeal. We collaborate on several projects and events that are carried out in the city, and we offer advice on matters involving regulations with the City Council and other public institutions. Passeig de Gràcia Association watches out for the avenue’s safety, civic spirit, cleanliness, and urban planning.
