Korrida zakupowa/ Shopping corrida

Przypadkiem znaleźliśmy się na Pl. Espanya w dniu otwarcia nowego centrum handlowego. Czekaliśmy na Nuno oglądając pokaz magicznych fontann, a potem musieliśmy wypełnić sobie jakoś czas zanim pojechaliśmy na lotnisko odebrać Magdę.

Istne tłumy waliły wszystkimi dostępnymi wejściami do Arenas de Barcelona, policja musiała kierować ruchem nie tylko samochodów, ale także przechodniów. W środku kolejki nawet do ruchomych schodów, jedne się zepsuły (awaria w dzień inauguracji to chyba źle świadczy o jakości wykonania), więc stworzył się gigantyczny korek. Większość ludzi jednak przyszła nie po to, żeby oddać się konsumpcyjnej żądzy kupowania, ale aby zobaczyć efekt przebudowy dawnej areny korridy zamienionej w centrum handlowe. Kiedyś arena walki byków, wzniesiona w 1900 roku, w stylu mauretańskim, obecnie centrum handlowe z 126 sklepami, restauracjami, 12 salami kinowymi, siłownią/ Spa. Arenas de Barcelona to także niezły punkt widokowy- 300 metrowy pasaż wokół krawędzi dachu pozwalający podziwiać niezwykłą panoramę miasta.
Projekt zaadaptowania areny korridy w galerię handlową ciągnął się latami, miał się skończyć już dawno, ale budowa została wstrzymana na kilka miesięcy na skutek wzajemnych oskarżeń kilku firm zaangażowanych w inwestycję. Widać, że gonił ich termin, bowiem inauguracja nie była do kończ gotowa- siłownia nie gotowa, wstawiono na szybko kilka rowerków i orbitreków, na klatce schodowej można się było potknąć o druty i pozostałości po budowie, w windzie lustra zaklejone kartonem. Na dodatek trafiliśmy na protest grupy antykapitalistów bojkotujących otwarcie centrum.




Oficjalna strona centrum Arenas de Barcelona tutaj. Pod wersją angielską spot promocyjny. A ja zapraszam do wejścia na taras widokowy.



By pure coincidence we found ourselves at Pl. Espanya the same day the big inauguration of a shopping centre took place. We were waiting for Nuno, watching the magic fountains show, and afterwards we needed to fill the time before picking Magda from the airport. There were so many people, all trying chaotically to make their way to enter Arenas de Barcelona, police had to direct not only car traffic but also pedestrians. Inside, it was so crowded that you could barely move, there were queues to escalators, one of them even broke down o the first day (it has to be a bad sign and bad publicity for the company who installed it) so we witnessed a massive traffic jam created by shoppers. Most of the people, however, didn’t come there to spend money to satisfy their consumerist desires but to see the effect of restoration of the former bullfighting arena transformed into a shopping center. Once a bullring, built in 1900, in the Moorish style, now is a modern shopping mall with 126 shops, restaurants, 12 cinema rooms, gym / spa. Arenas de Barcelona is also a panoramic viewpoint –roof with 300 meter long passage allows you to admire a spectacular view of the city. The project to adapt the bullfights ring into a shopping mall went on for years, it was supposed to be finished a long time ago, but construction was paralyzed for several months because of accusations of several companies involved in investment against each other. You can see that they were behind the schedule and the place even if inaugurated, wasn’t finished- gym was empty, they put only few bicycles and treadmills, the staircase was a dangerous place where you could stumble over some wires or other objects typical of a construction site, in the elevator the mirrors were covered with cartoon (maybe mirrors hadn’t even been installed yet). In addition, there was a group of anti-capitalist protesting against opening of the commercial center.




Official website of the shopping mall of Arenas de Barcelona can be found here. You can also check the ad. And personally I invite you to check the panoramic view.

Świat się zmienia... kiedyś ludzie potrzebowali igrzysk, dzisiaj wielkie widowiska ustępują miejsca wielkim centrom handlowym i okazuje się, że one dostarczają podobnych emocji.Może to i dobrze, skorzystały na tym zwierzęta. Widok z areny na pewno warty tych przepychanek. Pozdrawiam. Bożena

Ah te centra handlowe.... I o co tyle krzuku właściwie? :) Mnie nie pasjonują już od dawna, ale jak patrze na niektórych ludzi to obłęd w oczach!

Ja szczerze mowiac tez zupelnie nie rozumiem. Niektorzy jednak zdominowani sa przez konsumpcyjne zadze i chca tylko miec wiecej i wiecej i wiecej.
Do Arenas przybyly tlumy i widac bylo ze z zainteresowaniem rozgladaja sie po sklepach...
Ja jedynie polecam taras, bo widok stamtad na pl. Espanya niezapomniany.
