Cereria Subirà claims to be the oldest shop in all of Barcelona, although no one can agree on when exactly it was founded, and it hasn’t always sold candles. This “waxery” (or cereria) stocks home accessories, most of which have something to do with generating light. The store sells hundreds of varieties of candles, garden torches, and oil burners. Located in the Barri Gòtic neighborhood, this baroque-style store supplies candles to churches throughout Barcelona. Shelves are stocked with candles ranging from small, scented votives to molded versions of local novelties like the Montserrat massif.
