Lovely square - we stayed at the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya, which is a 10 minute walk. The square is buzzing. Its next to the Arena de Barcelona, which is if go to the top you get a great view of the square.

One huge plaza or placa in Catalan. The amazing magic fountain is here. The old bull ring ( Barcelona banned bullfighting) and more. Not as many cafes and more government buildings but a nice placa none the less.

A large traffic round about and a hub for buses, metro and airport buses. A couple of hotels and a large shopping center “Arenas”. Other then this no reason to come hear. Very noisy.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
