The place connects the ramblas with the passeig de gracia and offers plenty of Shopping possibilities itself. Furthermore you find a nice fountain and way too many pigeons. It is Great as a Meeting Point or for orientation.

This is a huge plaza with various statues from history. It also has a huge population of pigeons. There is a mall around the plaza, the Hard Rock Cafe, and more. It is right by La Rambla!

Plaza de Cataluna, with statues, , pigeons galore , and colorful street vendors is a hub between La Ramblas and other important avenues. Nice place for a short stroll as you explore Barcelona.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
