Die Plaça de Catalunya (deutsch Katalonienplatz) ist ein Platz im Zentrum Barcelonas. Da er das Bindeglied zwischen der Altstadt (Barri Gòtic) und der Neustadt (Eixample) darstellt, nimmt er eine zentrale Rolle ein und wird von den Einwohnern dieser Stadt und ihrer Umgebung als das Zentrum Barcelonas betrachtet. Charakteristisch für diesen Platz ist sein als sternförmige Figur aus blauen, roten und grauen Fliesen gestalteter Untergrund und die Verkehrslärm abschirmende Bepflanzung mit Springbrunnen, die den Platz umgibt.
In südöstlicher Richtung wird die Plaça de Catalunya durch die Promenade Les Rambles mit dem ehemaligen Hafen verbunden. Am linken Rand des Mittelstreifens der Rambles befindet sich die Font de Canaletes, ein gusseiserner Trinkwasserspender, dem nachgesagt wird, dass jeder, der daraus trinkt, nach Barcelona zurückkehren wird.

Nice place to spend some time sitting here and overall resting of your walking lol. it's nice to see but nothing too special or fancy to stick around for too long personally. We came here in August 2016 in pretty good weather. Recommend this place to visit if it is along your path to other sights.

You know, this is a cool city. However, it is so sketchy and there literally are countless of drug dealers everywhere. I hated walking around. I feared my life on every street. Go to Valencia... It's way better.

Walk down the Ramblas and see all the old buildings, the facades are very classical and distinct. There's almost unlimited shopping, everything you could imagine is available. There are some large anchor stores like H&M and then very many little shops for jewelry to toys.

Lovely place to visit & plenty of things going on. My children loved feeding the pigeons as you can buy seed from the sellers. There are also a few tourist bus trips which are located there. But please be very aware that there are pickpockets & bag thieves hanging around, I'm very observant & I spotted them dotted around everywhere pretending to be on their phones but paying more attention to what your carrying.

Nice place to receive Barcelona welcome with a lot of information points around it. The right point to do your research before the tour starts. Very beautiful & relaxing in the nights.

Beautiful architecture complements the bustling city lifestyle. There aren't actually many hagglers here too, which is lovely, and the shops are wonderful. Also many delicious eateries around here. You can get here using the Barcelona train network that reaches outside of the city itself (which is useful depending where you decide to stay on your holiday). It's also close to several tour buses and taxi stops, although I'd use the trains over the taxis as they are extremely expensive and the trains are actually very fast.

Worth visiting. There were some homeless campers on the plaza, but they didn't solicit tourists. At least, I didn't encounter any of them. I came to find a free tour guide with the "blue umbrella". I began my tour of the "Old Town" here with ... some Catalan guy, l forgot his name, but he looks like Josh Groban and watches South Park. I had a lot of fun making SP references during the tour. He was a total Spanish history buff and made 1300-1800 sufficiently interesting to me that I paid some attention. If you decide to go, be prepared to reach your 10k steps at some point during the tour. It was long, but at the end, he'll invite the group to sit over a drink, which is what socializing is like in normal Spain. You can ask him for food and place recommendation. It worth every penny.

What a gorgeous square! The palm trees 🌴, fountain ⛲, and all the people walking by make this the perfect spot for people watching. I wouldn't eat here though. Food is over priced, and greatly lacking in quality. Get a drink, and enjoy the scenery, then walk just outside the square (towards the gothic quarter) and you'll find much better food options.

A beautiful huge square in the heart of Barcelona. A very popular meeting place and a nice area to sit and people watch. After of coming here for years, the place now feels ordinary, but my five star rating is based on my first impression.

It’s a very beautiful place but lots of ilegal commerce in the area. It’s very busy with many many tourists around. You can find the most important shops of Barcelona in the area. It’s a little dangerous and it’s good to pay attention with your wallet and phone! But nothing that scares! Is as dangerous as any other big city

Plaza de Catalunya in Barcelona is One of the best international tourist destination here in the planet Earth. Barcelona is a nice place to explore. What i like in Plaza de Catalunya in Barcelona during my visit is the cool doves flying around and they were not afraid to Catalan people. They were able to maintain that area very clean and peaceful as compared to other bird sanctuary area.

Lovely day in Barcelona. Wonderful shopping around the Placa. Many stores that are familiar... worldwide. Great places for tapas, coffee, people watching. The fountains are really beautiful. Parking and then finding the correct lot was a bit of a challenge...same two years ago. I think that next time we'll be more careful to pick our landmarks. Lovely city and very gracious people. Great place to pick up the bus tour and begin the adventure of seeing an incredible city. This was my daughter's first visit and she fell in love.

A central point of Barcelona city, the Plaça Catalunya, with its large shopping centres and department stores, is constantly teeming with people. It is Barcelona's most favourite meeting place for locals and visitors. It also connects the Eixample and the old town. The plaza was opened by King Alfonso XIII in 1927 and covers an area of 5 hectares. The site was formerly an open piece of land located in front of the gates to the walled city.

If there’s a Cherry blossoms in other countries. There’s a lot of pollen trees around the city of Barcelona. It causes me allergy. But I have to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. I love to walk around and to see many views around the city and even go to Church every Sunday. Going to the beach every summer is also good for refreshing the mind to get rid from anxiety and I also love shopping. Oh! Window shopping I should say!😉 I just buy the things that really important on a daily basis— these all— I can call my rest day on the weekend. I feel tired when I spent my whole weekend on the bed. It feels so depressed.

Nice place full of beautiful people where you can relax and have a great time. It is especially known for its fountains and statues, its proximity to some of Barcelona's most popular attractions, and the flocks of pigeons that gather in the centre. Everyone is friendly, smiles a lot and is in an overall cheerful mood. I'll definitely come back as soon as i can.
Ross Tobz | Juli 31, 2018
Great place with very open views of the different streets you can explore. There are plenty of park benches and fountains, for when you are sick of walking around the many shops in the area, and some nice open areas and good places for photo opportunities. Plenty of tourist buses stop here too, so it's a great place to hop on and hop off.

Very pricey for what it was. Very small site, the surface was a gritty surface that was very dusty with wind or vehicle movements. Pool closed at 7 pm which was weird, as we would have loved a swim at 9pm when the temperature was still hot. The staff were constantly water blasting hire caravans so difficult to relax. We had to carry our toilet waste water through the restaurant area which we thought very odd. The best feature of the camp was the beach 150 metres away.

One of the four or five places you absolutely need to visit in Barcelona. Connection and starting point for different tourist routs. Gothic quarter and Casa Mila are close to this square also. Plenty places to find something to eat. Rail way station for the trains that go along coastal line is right below this place which makes it a perfect place to start your visit to Barcelona if you stay somewhere near it on the beach.
