  • This lively square is located in the Gothic quarter. Several places to have a drink or something to eat.

  • It is not necessary to go. If passing through the neighborhood are taking a photo. Specifically would not go to the square.

  • An area of old Barcelona it was renamed in honor of writer of the last century, just like we have in Soviet times all the historical names have changed. What for? That new space is not enough? Why do established surrealistic sculpture among the old houses? In my opinion, it looks quite inappropriate here. But I liked the area, drew the attention of the House with a façade, entirely izrisovannym ornament, which from time to time are found in the old city of Barcelona.

  • Nice plaza with a few food and drink options and a playground. Named after English author George Orwell who has connections with Barcelona during his time serving in the Spanish Civil War (I recommend reading Homage to Catalunya). There's a sculpture in the plaza that looks vaguely like an eye... I wonder if this is a tribute to Orwell's 1984... There's no plaque unfortunately so if anyone knows please share!
  • Meeting point for a very interresting visit of Barcelona.... in bicycle (3h!) We recommend this visit with its originals Barcelona'views Thanks to Lucie and her team.
  • Ideally placed, you will find good restaurants and bars, a square for children. So hours can chill on the terrasse while watching your kid play. Watch your belongings as a lot people hang out.
  • One of the nice places to be. A bit in the alternative side.
  • Some nice shops and tasty cheap restaurants. Quite hipster. Often local musitians play here too for loose change adding to the atmosphere
