Time Out says
Bargains from the Castanyer shoe company, quality, past seasons' stock and heavily discounted pairs in the commercial area of Banyoles
This is a real secret only for the initiated. Yes, you can find outlets of the mythical 'espardenyes' (espadrilles) made by Castanyer at the Roca Village outlet centre (close to Granollers), and even on the brand's website, but nowhere else will you find the bargains that appear, from time to time, in this shop. Display items, leftover stock that's been heavily marked down and models from a few seasons back are what you'll find there. The store is located close to the church of Santa Maria, a little out of the way but still in the lively commercial zone of Banyoles, and very close to the unusual Museu Darder. It's paradise for all lovers of sophisticated shoes who can't always afford the full-price items and are interested in buying locally made goods.
