  • It is wonderful to see the tribute paid to Orwell by naming this square to his honor, however there is nothing special to experience  more »
  • Place of visit: Plaza de George Orwell date of visit: 07/03/2017 Plaza located in the heart of the Gothic quarter, without any special charm, apart from the modernist sculpture that houses. Typical area where many bars and restaurants. The local people called this square as the square of the "corkscrew", the shape that has the sculpture that there is.

  • The Placa George Orwell is located in the heart of the historical center of Barcelona in the Barri Gòtic district between the Plaça Reial and the University Pompeu Fabra. The small triangular square has nothing to do with the famous writer common except the name. Except perhaps, that here said in allusion 1984 the first surveillance camera of the city was installed on the famous novel. If that's true, we don't know but don't. Otherwise there are some modern art. In our opinion, there are significantly more attractive and charmantere places than this in the immediate vicinity.

  • Lovely little square, George Orwell has important connections to the city, and he wanted the Communists to blow up the Sagrada Familia (I'm with him there). Some brilliant vegetarian offers around the square. Loved it
  • Known locally as "Plaza del Tripi" is a common place to sit back an relax some beers, there are plenty of restaurants and food available around at a good price. Still, being in the gothic quarter is a hot spot for Pickpockers so keep your stuff contolled at all times.
  • Beer and food cheaper. Nice atmosphere catches the sun
  • When in Barcelona you have to swing by George Orwell, know locally as Plaça Tripy as it used to be the place to get drugs. Now it's at a cross road of gentrification. There are plenty of bars/cafe/restaurants around. A playground for kids, buskers and locals standing around drinking beer. Sit and absorb the atmosphere
  • Its nice placa for children play
