This is the most beautiful Plaza in Spain. Accessibility is fantastic, about 5 minutes walk from the Arch. The highlight is the Magic Fountain of Montjuic water & light show.

Good alternative to visit Plaza Espanya, also has number of stand alone Tapas restaurant around the area. Recommend to Comercial Las Arenas opposite the Towers. Roof Top has number of restaurants, a good view there.

I really liked Place Espanya, the area is stunning with some decent shops and restaurants about as well, well worth a visit.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
