A real lively setting and picturesque. The old bill fighting ring turned shopping center is a site to see. Easily accessible by train.

This is a very grand Placa with lots to do in the area. Walk along to the Art Museum and the fountains and also spend time at the Arena shopping centre.

Basically a traffic circle, but there is something interesting at every angle. Things are beautifully framed as you stand at the center and look out.

The architecture of the square is amazing, in my opinion the most beautiful square in Barcelona, definitely worth your time.

It's sheer grandeur is itself enough to come and look. The fountains play and the walk from the metro to the top is well worth the little effort. Take your camera - so many angles, and take your time

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
