Always busy, plenty of variety and atmosphere. just take the normal precautions to avoid pick pockets that come with all busy places.

Worth a look, especially if you go on a night of the Montjuic fountain show. A pretty statue on the circle, but wouldn't go out of my way to get there.

Nothing much in this oval shaped shopping centre except that it is near the Magic Fountain. Everybody comes here before or after the fountain show and the restaurants and cafes are the only ones filled with customers. There is a nice view at the TOP...More

there's not much to see, the fountains are ok, but the place is much too crowded, so do yourself a favor and watch from a distance.

A bustling place during the day comes alive at night with the illuminated Magic Fountains coming to life to classical and popular music tracks. Lots of eating and drinking places nearby.

It is very nice plaza. There is arena near square. But It doesnt work as arena not. It is just shopping center. You can go up arena by elevator and you can watch square

Placa d'Espanya is one among many major squares in Barcelona. There is a nice fountain in the middle of the crossroads. It also offers a nice view of Montjuic.

Other than the view from the top of Montjuic, this has some of the best views of the city in one direction and a terrific view of Montjuic in the other.

Eixample
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
