In one of Barcelona’s emblematic plazas lies one of Gaudi’s first works, which goes highly unnoticed: the streetlights or streetlamps! After completing these, Gaudí found more work, like the renovation of the Consell de Cent (Council of One Hundred) chamber that few are familiar with, among others.
Yes, you are a curious traveler like me, so try to locate these beautiful streetlamps of almost martian-like design in the middle of the Plaza Real. The plaza presents a unique spot, full of life with countless restaurants, bars, terraces and even a beautiful fountain in the center. However, in my opinion, the most impressive sites are the incredible streetlamps which they later replicated in another of Barcelona’s interesting plaza, the Plaza del Palau. The two plazas are not very far from each other and can make for an interesting walk to see these modern designs.
