Plaça Catalunya marks the beginning and end of La Rambla, the biggest tourist street in Barcelona. From here you can also easily go to the shopping streets and on the square you will find the biggest El Corte Ingles of the city.
Plaça Catalunya is a large square that marks the end of the Ciudad Vella and the beginning of the Eixample. It's an important hub: several metro lines meet here, the airport bus stops here, and sightseeing tourist buses leave from here too. If it's not enough it's where the most important Spanish department store is located: el Corte Inglés
This central square is not very special by itself, but this place often functions as a starting points for tourists:
La Rambla, Via Laetana and Passeig de Gracia all start from hereUnderneath this square, a bit out of sight, is the main tourist officeEstacio Catalunya is the city´s main metro hubHard Rock Cafe & El Corte Ingles are closeby
Likely to be the first thing you see of central Barcelona if you arrive by bus or train. Many shops and some open spaces too, it was very busy but pretty relaxed when we visited, but possibly not always!!
Looks good at night too
It's where the famous boulevard La Rambla begins.Very lively and attractive.The public transport radiate from this square.
this place is full of people any time!I guess most of them choose this place to meet with friends ,other just sit there and have some rest.It full of birds too ,and they r not afraid of the people!
We got off the bus from the airport here. The fists we did was chase pigoens.
we are so cruel at times
Placa Catalunya is a very large square, conveniently conneced with other important places of Barcelona. It is one of Barcelona's most popular spots although I wouldn't call it beautiful.
It's a place where locals sit and watch people. Go there for them to watch. Haha!
Hmm, I forgot to take a pic of this place. This is the best I can find. I took it from the Place de Catalunya. :o)
The Plaça Catalunya is the very heart of the city: the place where inmigrants and tourists meet and where some of the most important streets in the city lead.
PLAZA DE CATALUÑA - Is the main plaza of Barcelona, Its the meeting point and very well located, near to everthing and in the heart of Barcelona.
