  • A good square to start the city tour if you are wondering where to start exploring spain from. The square has some amazing history so its best to explore it along with a local guide. The shots you can...  more »
  • One of the most beautiful squares and large I have ever seen! The gaze is lost, one has the impression of not knowing where to look!

  • The meeting point in Barcelona's downtown. From ther you can go down to "La Rambla" to the port and "Monumento de Colón", or down to "Portal del ángel" to do some shopping and finally get in "El barrio gótico" y the Cathedral, or just take Passeig the Grácia to see "La Pedrera" and "Casa Batllo", both amazing creations of Antoni Gaudi.
  • Well this is the center you have Corte Ingles and Apple Store in one side, Fnac is there, KFC, MacDonalds, restaurants, cafeterias, hotels, The Train Station is near, The Police Department and the Subway is under the ground and the police can help you if somebody steal you (your documents) or give information and alsothe turistic points in the day and if need you can get the bus to reach many places in Barcelona!
  • Tons of good places to eat all around. This place acts pretty much like a hub for tourists as all the tour buses start from here. All of Gaudi's stuff is close by within walking distance as well.
  • It's kind of the heart of Barcelona. Aeroport bus gets to here, and it's close to the gothic, born and rambla catalunya
  • Beautiful landmark at the end of La Rambla. Incredible, must see, fountain and sometimes the stage for Outdoor performances. The Link to the Airport (A1 / A2 - check your terminal). Great spot to use as a reference around town.
