Oviedo's Modoo Shopping Centre
In addition to the shops, it's a chance to marvel at an architectural tour de force from Santiago Calatrava.
More than just shopping.
This full-blown complex built a bit west of downtown in 2008 houses dozens of retailers with any product you could expect to find in a modern European shopping centre, but even if you aren't in the market for anything, it's worth a visit because of the beautiful and surprising structure itself, built by the firm of Spain's best known contemporary architect, Santiago Calatrava; take in its bold, futuristic, and now already famous swoops and curves while strolling around its landscaped outdoor area. Modoo also has much more to offer than shopping and a handful of places to grab a bite; there's an exposition hall and luxury hotel out here, as well.
