  • 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.

  • Read George Orwell's novel "1984," when I was a 15-year-old in 1970. It was a novel in 1949, wrote that in the future. Content is after a nuclear war, the world by the superpowers of Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia divide and conquer and control is added to the civic life and lack supplies, citizens through two-way television called "telescreen" always both indoor and outdoor, nearly all actions are monitored by the authorities. It was a dark novel. George Orwell participated in Spain civil war veteran. And wrote "homage to Catalonia". What's "homage to Catalonia" to commemorate the square. The square Tower, was George Orwell's nameplate.
