Very cool spot. Fountains were beautiful. We caught a show with large puppets they had there for Christmas that was incredible.

Spent New Year's Eve with the crowds in Placa Espanya. Saw the fireworks, music, and fountain show. A lot of happy people but relatively well behaved crowd with kids, families, couples, etc. Make sure you have 12 grapes handy to celebrate the new year.

I found this place while travelling on the Bus Touristic. To be honest, the view was jaw-dropping. People kind of had the urge to hop off the bus to discover the place. You can take some nice pictures there.

This is a place with a lot of different influences from different cultures. The view from the top is phenomenal but the fountain doesn't work in winter.
