The weather was very warm, but we greatly enjoyed our trip to the Placa d'Espanya. Take in the views, and then proceed on to the Stadium, gardens, and Miro museum.

Very huge square, one of the biggest in the city! one of the main transportation hub and featuring many attractions: from the Venetian towers, to the magic fountain (by evening) and the Arenas! (bullring). So busy, almost caotic but a must to see!

Worth going along in the evening to watch the fountains reach amazing heights to music! It can get really crowded so get there a little earlier to get a good spot

Spend a few happy hours in this replica of an authentic Spanish Village. Plenty to see and some very good eating experiences. Many opportunities can be taken for lovely photos of your memories.

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
