Plaça de Catalunya (Square)

Plaça de Catalunya

Located between the old city and the Eixample districts, Plaça de Catalunya is widely regarded as the city centre of Barcelona. This square is full of beautiful sculptures and fountains. Just like Trafalgar square once was in London, it's famous for the numerous amount of pigeons that occupy the area. This area is connected to the old Gothic quarter of Barcelona through Via Laietana and Portal de l'Angel, as mentioned in our Barcelona Medieval route.

If you come to visit the capital of Catalonia, ​​we will help you to find the best vacation rentals in Barcelona. We offer apartments of different types, renovated and well furnished in all areas of Barcelona!

Things to see around Plaça de Catalunya

Because it's so well located, you'll probably find yourself passing by this square more than once. On the one side you have some of the main avenues of Barcelona like Rambla de Catalunya, and Passeig de Gràcia (where you will find Casa Batlló and Casa Milà) and to the other side you have Barcelona Cathedral and Las Ramblas.

It's also a great place to go shopping, with El Triangle shopping centre featuring FNAC (electronics and books), habitat (home-ware), and various fashion shops. There is also El Corte Inglés, a huge department store where you can find practically anything. Passeig de Gracia, one of the avenues that lead into the Plaza is full of luxury branded stores.
