Avenue of the Parallel (or Avinguda del Paral·lel as locals call it) is a good currency exchange place for those who don’t want to join the crowd on La Rambla.

You will find both money changers and theaters on this avenue. It is good to know that the street is often compared with Montmartre in Paris or New York’s Broadway due to the sheer number of theaters it has.

Most forex shops on Avenue of the Parallel offer service 7 days a week.
