Big square in the middle of a city. Lots of pedestrians. We also saw a rat in the middle of the day getting a drink of water from a puddle. Lots of walking tours begin here - and the airport shuttle begins and ends here.

This is probably the most central place in Barcelona/ The Aerobus from the airport stops (and starts) here, there are tourist information kiosks. This is a huge squares, with lots of cafes and restaurant. This is also the place of street shows and political demonstrations.

Whether we were on foot or by taxi, we frequently found ourselves passing through here. There's tons of shopping, people watching, buskers and I don't know what else... just don't ask me why my only picture seems to be of the Banco de España!

Traveled to Spain in August 2017 and fell in love with the city. The square was beautiful and a lot of sight seeing. We were very impressed that we want to go back for a longer time.
