  • It's a great place to be in Barcelona, but there are many more people at the end of the year, and it's hard to cross the square. Moreover, there is a stage for the event of the opening and the big miso, and it might be easier to turn around the road more than it crosses.

  • I went to a few times to get on the aero bus to go sightseeing in Casa. There are two large fountains facing Passeig de gràcia and green trees in the city.

  • Somewhat of a city centre. Pl. De Catalunya is a big square connecting major roads. Filled with shopping complexes, restaurants and bars this place also has a large open space in the middle usually full of birds. There is a fountain, park benches and there was a stage being set up for some show that weekend. Accessible by bus, metro. Also a stop for changing lines on the Tourist bus.
  • It's a typical European Square. Very spacious. Elegant and rich in history.Look out for the pigeons and guys selling useless junk like umbrellas and dead battery chargers and other cheap trinkets...pro tip brush up on your Catalan.
