If in Barcelona you plan to do some physical activity beyond a stroll down La Rambla, Decathlon is really the only name you need to know. Every single sport is covered in this French-owned megastore, from football and tennis to ja-kai (Basque handball) and Ping-Pong. There is swimwear, clothing for jogging, aerobics, cycling hats (and bicycles), ski gear, hiking boots, and wet suits. Their prices are pretty much unbeatable, especially on their house items.
