Barcelona Plaça Catalunya

Barcelona Plaça Catalunya

The Barcelona's most famous square

Plaça Catalunya (in Catalan), or Plaza Cataluña (in Spanish), Plaça Catalunya is a traffic axis and a very important intersection of the city. With its very large number of possible accesses, Plaça Catalunya is one of the most recommended meeting points for getting to the centre of Barcelona.

Barcelona Catalonia Square

On certain occasions, such as Barcelona's end-of-year celebrations, the Plaça Catalunya takes on a different look, becoming an ice rink, a concert venue, or a place for exhibitions and events.
But for most of the year, the famous Plaça Catalunya (Catalonia Square) is occupied by a very large concentration of pigeons who have made this unmissable place in Barcelona their headquarters.

Josep Clarà Goddess

The Goddess that sits in the middle of a stretch of water at one end of the Plaza de Catalunya, the work of the famous Spanish sculptor Josep Clarà i Ayats, is one of the sculptures in the most visited square in Barcelona. The nude ivory-coloured woman bathing on one of the corners of Plaça Catalunya (on the Ramblas side), also known as the Enigma, was installed in 1929 for the inauguration of the international exhibition.

Francesc Macià Monument

The monument to Francesc Macià is one of the sculptures planted around the central mosaic of Plaça Catalunya.
Located on the southern part of the square, the monument to Fancesc Macià was founded by the artist Josep Maria Subirachs in 1991 in honour of the former president of the Generalitat.
