Address
Neighbourhood: Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

This shop is a must if you love candles. It is the oldest shop in Barcelona. There was so much choice. My purchases were beautifully wrapped. Staff were very helpful.

Candles Since 1761
Dec. 2016 • Couples
Cereria Subira has been selling candles from different Barcelona addresses since 1761. Today they offer an amazing number of shapes, sizes, and, especially, the most vivid colors. Worth a visit just to see the interior (current building was a high-end 19th Century fabric store) and well worth the purchase of some candles. And yes, kid's birthday candles with pop culture figures are available.

Something for everyone, friendly staff
Nov. 2016 • Couples
What a gem! If you're looking for beautiful or unusual presents or even just a unique and inspiring experience, go here. In fact, don't miss this gem of a shop. The shop itself is stunning, like something from Harry Potter or Dickens. The candles are unique; they have a factory 20km outside the city and in France and also a specialist artisan supplier from Poland.
I bought two beautiful Christmas candles, a wine glass with wine scented candle gel in it - so realistic - and a Minnie mouse candle for a Minnie fan. Something for everyone, no mistake!
A lovely woman served me and contributed to a super experience I will not forget.

Wide choice of candles

Any time of candles you can imagine, any scent. Personally me, I do prefer small ones in metallic cans (olibanum, tobacco, applepie and sugar)

The oldest store in Barcelona?
Aug. 2015
A local told me this is the oldest store in Barcelona (centuries). Simplistically - a candle store with origins clearly in serving the neighbouring cathedral. The interior is like a movie set, but most importantly the candles on offer are a very good buy!

Beautiful Candles From The Oldest Shop In BCN
Jul. 2015 • Family
Very surprised that this place is not listed in the travellers' Bible that is Tripadvisor.

Recommended to me by a denizen of this city, it is located just 3 minutes walk from Plaza San Jaume. Specialist candle makers originally and still providing to the churches in the city, you can see little old Spanish ladies coming in to buy devotional candles. The premise which dates back to 1761 is a nod to the Baroque era. Nowadays, Subira makes a really wide array of candles, both scented and non-scented.

Was a happy bunny having bought a bagful of candles of every shape and size which will compliment the decor of my beach home ! If only I bought more check-in luggage kg on my onward flight !!
