Placa Espanya is a busy *circle* leading of in 4-5 directions. Trains for Montserrat go from here. The famous old bullring is on the placa,now converted into apartments/workplaces. Loads of food places on/off the square,but doesnt warrant much more than a passing through 20-30 minutes...More

As the title suggests, Placa Espanya is beautiful. Loved the old Bullring and the trip up to the top is well worth it!

Feels very different from Placa Cataluyna and the centre of Barcelona, the large scale of the square never fails to impress me and at night you can see the Magic Fountains of Montjuic.

Well worth the visit. Very impressive architecture and good views of the city from the high vantage point.

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
