“Square is not a sqaure but different and attractive”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

It’s one of the important square and junction in Barcelona. The towers are more or less like Venetian Tower.
It also leads to the MNAC.

You may reach the square by metro getting off right at the square. Or if you taking Hop on hop off bus it’s on red line route.
The square is worth visiting during day or at night. Especially for the fountain in the evening.

“Well, that's a lot of traffic!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

But enjoyable to watch. Many people many buses. Just sit and enjoy the free show called humanity. Then, head up toward Montjuic.

“I Love this Mall”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a very specials mall, very beautiful, I Love this place.
In Barcelona, they against to the bullfighting, they change it to a shopping mall, they stop a while in the middle of renovation because of some reason(you will find out when you visit this mall). They have some history in the wall when you go up. The best things is you wont find the bullfighting in Barcelona anymore. If you really want to watch it, only in Madrid.
I think this mall is meaningful. I always go there and spent all days there.
They have many shops, many cafe and restaurant, some are in the roof top. You can have a nice view from there. If the music Fountain start, you also can hear the music from here.

“Impressive”

A centre that has to be seen - impressive fountains. Like Catalunya and the Ramblas - a must see. Good place to watch the world go by.
