Plaça de Catalunya
The largest square in Barcelona.
The Plaça Catalunya in Barcelona, as big as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and St. Peter's Square in Rome, covers a surface area of 50,000 square metres, marking the border between the chic Eixample district and the winding little streets of the old quarter.
In a green area and adorned with 28 statues, the Plaça Catalunya boasts the famous Café Zurich located at the foot of the El Triangle shopping centre. The splendid view from the top floor of the shopping centre is highly recommended.
