The spacious Plaza Catalunya is the place where the Passage-de-Gràcia Avenue and Rambla Blvd. meet. This, if I may say so, the Red Square of Barcelona , with the only difference is that there are no government buildings and military commandant’s offices in the district. Once an ancient small square to the north of Rambla, it was significantly expanded and “combed” first to the World Exhibition in 1888, and then to the Barcelona International Exhibition of 1929.
Today the area of Catalonia can boast of 50,000 square meters. m. of “useful” granite. This is one of the popular meeting places for city residents, in addition, you can always quench your thirst from free fountains (which is said to guarantee a speedy return to Barcelona). The center of the square marks a luxurious and very “fluffy” fountain, and along the perimeter there are several monuments. On the sides of the square are the headquarters of Spanish banks, the El Corte Ingles shopping mall and the Consulate of Canada: how Barcelona jokes to get money, to spend and escape from justice. And also here is the official store of the football club of Barcelona, where you can buy a blue garnet jersey and a portrait of your favorite Messi.
On the lower level of the square is the central and largest department of the Tourist Office of Catalonia, and from its side buses go to the airport of Barcelona and tourist buses on excursions to Catalonia – for example, to the mountain of Montserrat, to Girona and Figueres.
The nearest metro station is Catalunya, as well as Passeig de Gracia and Urquinaona.
