New shopping centre in bull fighter arena

Today is the official opening of the new shopping centre "Arenas". This shopping centre is quite special as it has been built inside of a former bull fighter arena - this is apparently the first of its kind in the world. It is located in Plaza España, often the first stop in Barcelona when you take the bus from the airport
This construction has been going on for a long time (as far as I remember over six years) but today it is finally oficially opening for and tomorrow at 10:00 it will be opening for the average public.
The shopping centre contains 6 floors and will include many different shops, supermarkets, cinemas, a Rock Museum a its own metro station. Will definitely visit this weekend and report back!

This picture was taken yesterday, it looked like they still had things to finish up...
