A few meters from La Rambla into the Gothic quarter, lies this beautiful square. Just admire the buildings around it, or sit in one of the cafes there

Ok not so hidden off of La Ramblas, but a beautiful place to find dining, shopping, etc. Very easy to get to via la Ramblas. A must see.

This lovely square is in the gothic quarter not far from the picasso museum. It's normal to see street dancers or sellers there. It's made up mainly of restaurants and bars.

It has a nice vibe to it. The actual square is clean and it isn’t too crowded but it does have people around. Restaurants and performers are there for your enjoyment and food!

Next to the Rambla and Liceu, this palatial square is a place filled with restaurants and animated by artists. Lovely place to have lunch or a drink or dinner.

What a great place, just off La Ramblas. A beautiful square, full of bars and restaurants. Lots of street performers to entertain, and a great place to kick back, enjoy the sunshine and watch the world go by.
