  • Beautiful place to visit, go up to the very top of El Carte Englese to sit in their cafe with the view to this beautiful plaza and city overall. Food is not too nice there, ok, just like in any other ...  more »
  • Large square located in a central point of the city's main attractions. Las Ramblas lead on it, to then continue with Paseo de Gracia and m is the Gran Via Cort de Catalanes, which unites it with Spain square and Plaza Glories Catalanes, each of these to the ends of the gran Vía. So always pass through it to go walking from one side to another. It is also on the edge of the Barrio Gothic. It has two huge fountain and is surrounded by shopping streets and the large Corte Inglés. It is the entrance on the square to a basement of the office of tourism - recommended-. Also point of connection with the metro and train to nearby

  • 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.
