This huge square is one of the centers of town, certainly where the tour busses pick up their passengers. A big Metro station is here. The largest department store is here. You will pass through.

One of the best streets in Barcelona for shopping, dinning and moving around. You see a great blend of Spanish architecture

This would have once been beautiful square, as there is evidence of beautiful buildings and statues. Today it is full of pigeons, with are a nuisance and people selling fake good. There are better squares in the city.

This is a vast square but with lots of unfulfilled potential. It has some lovely statues scattered all around the square but with fountains not working, masses of space unused, and loads of migrants selling fake items it was a big disappointment.
