Plaça de Catalunya square

This square in the centre of Barcelona is one of the city's main meeting points. It is also the starting point for major thoroughfares such as Las Ramblas, the Paseo de Gracia and the Ronda de Sant Pere. It links the old part of the city with the newer area. Its large central space serves as a venue for shows, exhibitions, fairs and all kinds of gatherings that take place throughout the year in Barcelona. It is also one of the main shopping areas and has a large number of shops, cafes and banks: it is a key connection point between several modes of transport. The square is surrounded by gardens and trees, where the key elements include two twin fountains and several sculptures by leading artists such as Pablo Gargallo, Josep Clarà and Enrique Casanovas, among others.
