Portal de l'Àngel (Template:IPA-ca) is a pedestrian street in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona by Plaça Catalunya, and part of the large shopping area that spans from Avinguda Diagonal to Barri Gòtic. It's one of the city's most visited streets and is always crowded with tourists at any time of the year.

It's also worth of noting Portal de l'Àngel is one of Barcelona's most expensive areas, with rents as high as an average price of 180€ per square metre in 2005, which made it Spain's second most expensive street only after Calle Preciados in Madrid. Barcelona's gas company Gas Natural's headquarters recently moved from Portal de l'Àngel to a newly built skyscraper on Carrer de Salvat Papasseit in La Barceloneta.

There is a large El Corte Inglés department store in this street, just opposite a building that has a giant thermometer in its façade. It's also home to other international shopping brands, such as Zara, Massimo Dutti, and Benetton.
