Are There Duty-Free Stores at the Barcelona Cruise Ship Terminal?

There are a few shops within the Barcelona Cruise Ship Terminal, but the prices are average. Also, unless you are from outside of the European Union, duty is payable on most items you may purchase. If you are from outside the EU, it may be possible to claim back taxes paid, but this depends on where you are traveling to and from and also what you purchase. This is probably not the best location to stock up on cheap shopping or bargain drinks. If you want greater choices, try the shopping center, El Corte Ingles at the Placa Catalunya, where there are plenty of stores, but none are duty free.
