Placa Espanya, Barcelona

(4.4/5 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.

  • 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.
