Business opening hours and sale taxes

In general, shops in Barcelona open in the morning from 10h to 14h and in the afternoon from 17h to 20h. Some shops do not close for lunch and most of them do not close on Saturday afternoon. Sunday is rest day. Nearly all museums close on Mondays.

Value Added Tax (in Spanish, IVA) for general goods (21%) and hotels and restaurants (10%) is charged on the consumption of products in the European Union, and only visitors resident in other countries are therefore exempt, when the purchase exceeds €90.15 in the same shop. A Tax-Free sticker is displayed in more than 700 establishments in the city’s main shopping areas, including the airport. Ask for details for reimbursement when you make your purchase. A touristic tax applies to tourists staying in hotels, apartments, cruise liners and campsites. The tax will range from 0.50 euros to 2.50 euros per person per night ,depending on the category of accommodation you’re staying in.
