Plaça Catalunya

You are here

This popular meeting place is situated in the heart of the Bari Gotic area, surrounded by department stores and modern shops. Known for its benches, ornamental gardens and fountains, the Plaça Catalunya is easily recognized as the place where all roads meet. Taxis and tour buses line the perimeter while locals and visitors alike assemble in the square, making it a hot spot for conversation and people-watching.

"Plaça Catalunya [was where] I would always meet my friends to go places, it was right by my house, right by school, and everything was near it. My experience in Barcelona revolved around meeting at this central location and it helped me locate myself in my surroundings." -Laura H., University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
