Atop a metro and train station, and many different bus stops at the surface. This leads to the Montjuic area, including the Magic Fountain, Museum National Art of Catalunya (MNAC), Olympic Park, and Fort Montjuic. Twin towers are based on the bell tower of St....More

Enormous square, starting point for Montjuic Castle and gardens, easy to reach via metro. Nice architecture all around. Looks even better once the lights are on in the evening.

On one side of this famous square is shopping arema and on the other side are the columns that leads to the magnificent building of museum of art. On your way to museum you will find magic fountains

Placa Espanya is very prominent square in Barcelona. You can get all major public transport connectivity here. This is a very old square. A shopping mall is 2 minutes in walking distance.

Fantastic place It starts from an ex-arena and goes straight into the national art museum You pass through magical fountains so it’s better to go there by night

You can see Museu Art d’Catalunya, Font Magica, and the statue in the middle of the roundabout. It’s a big square and there are buildings around it along with the mountains in the background. Nice views and a centerpiece of the city!

A great centre piece of the City. Start from the top of Arenas de Barcelona for great views. The walk up through the towers to the Museum is wonderful and the views looking back across the City are splendid.

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
