It is an usual square with a nice fountain, worth a visit but only for passing through. The Rambla is beginning from here so you basically can not miss it.

Catalunia square and the hotel near are the best place to visit in Barcelona, because all important things to do and to see are in this area - like La Rambla main street, beach, restaurants, the shopping mall and so on.

There are much nicer places to sit and watch the world go by in Barca to be honest. You will spend so much time checking your camera, back pack and pockets to take in anything. Fountains are good though.

with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
