Roman sacred art very special. It was taken from churches all over Catalona. Loved the two modern art exhibits.

You should visit this plaza if you are in Barcelona, but do not worry if you miss it It is a very nice plaza with a lot of huzzle and buzzle - (too hot in summers)

This area is easily accessible for all modes of transportation. It has street lined cafes & bars (watch your personal belongings here!!) shopping is available across all areas of the plaza. Ladies wear flat shoes as you may well be walking a few miles!

A very nice large public place / square close to the most, trains, busses, banks, Starbucks. Most of all, a place to sit down and relax and view the pigeons, and sometimes somebody will music and sell soft drinks from a wagon.

This Square was a central hub for our day in Barcelona. The hop on and off buses all stopped around it. Huge fountains, statues and plenty of spaces to relax around the hustle and bustle of the city.

Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
