Placa Espanya, Barcelona

(4.5/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
All roads in Barcelona seemingly lead to Placa Espanya. Well, at least its major thoroughfares meet here. But the main draw remains the grand monuments that dot the square. Crane your neck at the 47 m (154 ft) Venetian Towers, wander the Arenas de Barcelona shopping center, inside a former Moorish Revival-style bullring, and, if the weather's right, kick back in Parc de Joan Miró, named after the renowned Catalán artist whose 22 m (72 ft) Woman and Bird statue sits on one of the park's corner. Ride an elevator to the top of the shopping center for views of the plaza. Before you head to Barcelona, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Barcelona trip builder, to make sure you see all that Barcelona has to offer, including Placa Espanya.

  • No architectural that adds charm. Good anywhere, but the best looks from above, from the building of the CENI.

  • In the middle of the city a such imposing building with all the trappings. In the Middle, as well as from above on the roof terrace of the arenas-& getting worth a visit.

  • Good food and great coffee. Somewhat more expensive than having breakfast at a bakery.
  • It's ok, but you have to queue twice to pay and collect food. Waiter service please!
  • Very delicious and quick breaskfast, we came here on our last day in Barcdelona.
  • Great food for a chain. Recommended by a friend :) Nice and easy!
  • Great place for a quick bite. Nothing fancy but food is really good and most of all really cheap.
