Not only is this iconic square a major transport hub, but also home to some of the most tourist spots in the city, thanks to its variety of fascinating attractions and places of interest. The central fountain in the middle of the roundabout is reason alone to visit this area of Barcelona, given that it was designed by the modernist architect Josep Maria Pujol - a collaborator and close friend of the world renowned Antoni Gaudí. With Placa d’Espanya’s wide variety of things to do and see, this route is perfect for culture vultures, shopaholics and foodies alike.
