really a nice calming place with a lot of bars and restaurants , you can sit there , enjoy a drink with a calm and quite atmosphere that take you off las rambla hassle and noise and you would feel that you are totally in different place. we were lucky that there was some guy playing the accordion and give you a dreaming feeling , we really enjoyed the place and would visit it again next time.

OK its not saint marks in venice but it is a very pretty square, a real contrast with Las Ramblas with some expensive places to eat all around it. Nice atmosphere in the evening

Nice place to see, with the lamps designed by Gaudi. Not the first to do in Barcelona, but you can stop by while you are walking around.

we entered the place and fell into an age long ago and far away. this space is surrounded by 100+ year old buildings, i think apartments, offering wrought iron baconies and louvered windows opening onto the square. the central fountain was beautiful as were the towering palms within the cobbled courtyard. 4 restaurants, outdoor seating a must, ringed the courtyard. while enjoying lunch, and fine spanish wines (both very reasonably priced) we were entertained by flemingo dancers, acrobats, guitarist, and a parade of people watching. as the day was windy and chilly, the enclosed Placa offfered a warm and thoroughly enjoyabe sunny space for a long cafe lunch. restaurant ambos mondo made my first paella, and it was devine. no reason not to visit, and frankly it was a lovely 90 minutes off the streets of bustling barcelona into a lovely quiet place of beauty.
