Memoring if you can go during the night with the lighting effects make it a rememberable scene.
During the day it is also beautiful and can capture a selfie!
Make sure you take pictures from bottom before you make your way to the top and take a picture looking down!
Plaza Catalunya is a meeting point for all tourists and locals! It is one of the most important centers for public transport in the city, as well as a good starting point to go shopping, to museums, on tours, etc.
A legendary square in the heart of Barcelona. With palm trees and cafés on all sides, Plaza Real is a very pleasant square to relax in after visiting the Gothic neighborhood around it.
It is about a hundred meters away from Las Ramblas. You can still hear the noises, you see the people passing by, you look at the street artists imitating football stars or doing magic tricks to make a living during a Catalan summer.
It is squared and the corners get packed with people, according to the direction of the sun at the hottest time of the day. Once the sun sets, it gets lively into the late hours of the night. It has a lovely fountain in the center, called Tres Gracias fountains. The streetlamps(fanals in Catalan) are Antoni Gaudí's. It is a rather touristic place and the restaurants around are usually expensive. There is a flamenco show every night in one of them, for 8€, a little too short according to me. But there is always something going on in the square, an open air exhibition, a show, a play, even mariachi music since the square is twinned with the Garibaldi one in Mexico D.F.
One of the oldest squares in the city. The facade of the Palacio Real Mayor (with the Salón del Tinell) stands in the back. On the right there is the Palatina Chapel or Capella de Santa Àgata and on the left the Palau del Lloctinent (the Owner's Palace) in which the archives of the Crown of Aragon has been located for a time, now moved to Almogàvers street. On the right, at the corner with Veguer street, there is the Clariana-Padellàs house, in which the Museum of History of the City is currently located.
Plaça del Sol is one of the most famous and busiest squares of Gracia. The fact unknown by many travelers is that the name of the square comes from the sculpture you can find there, Astrolabi, a solar clock with the twelve zodiac signs designed by Joaquim Camps. On the square there are tapas bars and terraces, music and and a lively, very lively atmosphere.
