World > Barcelona, Spain
For years, the lines of florists stalls and their brightly coloured bunches of flowers have given La Rambla, one of Barcelona’s most-appealing tourist attractions, a perpetually festive air. But there are fears that they may soon disappear.
Last week La Vanguardia newspaper reported that 13 Rambla florists received €750 (£464) fines for selling cheap souvenirs alongside their flowers. The big black trays, on which sit a selection of fridge magnets in the shape of paellas, bulls and so on that are sold at a euro apiece, have now disappeared – only to be replaced by home-made esquelas [death notices] proclaiming the imminent financial collapse of the florists’ businesses.
