  • If, like me, you have read Homage to Catalonia and thought you would visit, just look at the photos unless you are in the area. There not much to see and it's definitely not worth going out of your wa...  more »
  • Our hotel over looked the plaza and we got to experience it all hours of the day. It was quite at daybreak, bustling at lunch, and filled with groups meeting in the evening. It was a lovely place to e...  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
