Placa Catalunya hums with unyielding energy. Constantly evolving, crowds flock to this vibrant epicentre day and night for its multitude of shops, landmarks, restaurants, bars and museums. Catalunya square, the beating heartbeat of the city centre, leads to Barcelona’s best and most exciting areas to explore. On one end, La Rambla pedestrian mall is filled with Barcelona action at its best. At the other end, Passeig de Gracia is a virtual shopping mecca full of wide boulevards and grand architecture. Just a short walk will lead you to the beguiling Gothic quarter, El Gòtic. A beautiful contrast of dark narrow cobbled streets and hidden churches that lie in shadow between the medieval walls, Gargoyles and archways. In the evenings, locals flock to the many trendy pubs and clubs tucked away around this area.
