  • Ground Zero of the city of Barcelona, we have at your store around El Corte Ingles, tourist information, the Rambla, Palau de La Musica Catalana. A pity we found installed in tents around the square of a movement like people without land. At night the illuminated fountains, a SideShow.

  • It is the city's main square. From it all the main streets of Barcelona, such as Passeig de Gracia, Rambla, Rambla de Catalunya, Pelayo Street and Avenue, Portal del Angel. Point of reference for all, especially for tourists, because from it is easy to get to any site of interest, whether historical or not. Beautiful. TO VISIT ABSOLUTELY!

  • Another lovely plaza with fountains. Nice place to relax for a minute. DO NOT FEED THE PIGEONS. They will literally be all over you.
  • Two types of city bus tour starts from here for 4 routes. There is fountain gardens, beautiful sculptures and if some likes to feed pigeons there are many. One can also sit in shade and relax. One of the corner has a huge iPhone shopping mall.
  • Nice plaza.. nearby is the magic fountain which cannot be missed. The arena mall overlooking th plaza is nice.. go all the way to the top to enjoy a city view.
  • A large spacious plaza with lots of pigeons. I personally think pigeons are rather unhygienic but if you would like to take pictures with them or have a good view of the city of Barcelona. This can be a stopover place during your visit.
  • You can feed a lot of pigeons here. They are not scared of anything. they will eat out of your hand
