Plaša d'Espanya

Plaša d'Espanya

One of the most important squares and as well as an important transit hub in Barcelona. It is situated at the crossing of Avinguda Gran Via de le Corts Catalanes and Avinguda del Paral-lel. This impressive square was originally the monumental entrance to the area of the International Exhibition of 1929. Two soaring towers stand between Palau Nacional and the Plaša d'Espanya. At the other end of the Plaša d'Espanya stands the 'Arenas de Barcelona'. It is the bullring built in 1900, but bullfights have never really caught on in Catalonia and the arena has now been turned into a modern domed shopping center. On the top of the Arena you will find some place to sit down and have a lunch or dinner and enjoy the view around it.
