The tourist shopping zone within which opening on Sundays and bank holidays is permitted, is to be extended
As of 2022, the city’s most important tourist shopping zone (ZGAT) has been extended, with the corresponding change in permitted opening hours, with the agreement of the Fundació Barcelona Comerç, Barcelona Oberta, PIMEC Comerç, the Foment del Treball employers’ association, the National Association of Large Distribution Companies (ANGED), the Confederation of Workers' Commissions (CCOO) and UGT trade unions, and support from Barcelona City Council, as well as the green light from the Government of Catalonia.
On this page, you will find all the information you need on the expansion of the tourist shopping zone. There are also details of the city’s calendar, and trading hours. In Catalonia, authority over the regulation of trading hours falls both to the State and to the Government of Catalunya, which regulates opening hours through clause 4 of Act 18/2017, of 1 August, on commerce, services and fairs, section IV.
