Plaça de Catalunya

Square in L'Eixample

At the intersection of the old city and L'Eixample, Plaça de Catalunya is the city's central transport hub, both for buses and trains, and a convenient meeting point. A large square with some impressive fountains and elegant statuary, it's filled with street sellers, tourists and families feeding pigeons. It's a busy spot surrounded by lots of traffic, so is not really a spot to linger.
