  • A square in the center of the Gothic quarter between 2 Government buildings. Here is the site of several events but didn't see anything too much in this square

  • The Placa de Sant Jaume is the historical and political center of the city. If you go by the Cathedral of South over the Carrer del Bisbe, is less than five minutes. The historic square was an important crossroads as early as Roman times. The historic buildings from the 16th century today are the City Hall and the seat of the Catalan autonomy Government. There's a lot coming together and we looked around us here quite awhile long. Overall, an attractive spot with lots of charm.

  • Loved the view of the square. There is a couple of coffee shops that you can stop by. Beautiful part of Barcelona.
  • It's where the BARCELONA'S AJUNTAMENT is located. A very big and nice Plaça, close to the cathedral.
  • One of countless beautiful places in Barcelona. Architectural very interesting.
  • Just the next square down Placa de Sant Jaume is Placa de Sant Miquel, just behind the Ajuntament de Barcelona stands an odd monument, depicting Catalunya’s national sport: Castelles. It’s the art of building human castles which today can go up as high as 10 levels of humans with absolutely zero support. This culture is so unique that it is even included in UNESCO's Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. This particular art installation showcase the highest Castelles ever attempted. This have my brain going in circles trying to imagine the human feat of going up that high with just human beings.
  • Spectacular place for doing photography and just soak it all in with its beautiful architecture.
