All roads in Barcelona seemingly lead to Placa d'Espanya. Well, at least its major thoroughfares meet here. But the main draw remains the grand monuments that dot the square. Crane your neck at the 47 m (154 ft) Venetian Towers, wander the Arenas de Barcelona shopping center, inside a former Moorish Revival-style bullring, and, if the weather's right, kick back in Parc de Joan Miró, named after the renowned Catalán artist whose 22 m (72 ft) Woman and Bird statue sits on one of the park's corner. Ride an elevator to the top of the shopping center for views of the plaza. Put Placa d'Espanya and other Barcelona attractions into our Barcelona trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • This arena is one of the largest and most important in Barcelona. Huge traffic flows into it, so it's always noisy in the arena. The arena group forms many large buildings, including tall towers, embellished like Venetian architecture, and a bullring arena. The box seemed to me very difficult, but a lot of people love it.

  • Beautiful square with bell towers and fountain in the background,especially when viewed from above with the history museum in the background.
