Free Birds-Eye View from Top Floor of El Corte de Ingles
For a free, birds-eye view over this plaza, we went to go to the 9th floor of the big shopping centre, El Corte de Ingles. It’s on the corner, with large lettering that you can’t miss. Head to La Roto...
Nice square, frequently used as a meeting location.
We were there right before the pandemic, and it was a nice square with many people milling about. A good meeting spot, surrounded by businesses. Not much to actually do, and crowded with tour groups...
Placa de Catalunya is the very central place on #barcelona . It is famous with many birds flying around and also with the nice architecture and atmosphere which can be felt here. For me it is a unique place and I cannot mix it in my mind with the other attractions of the city. I really enjoy this square every time I visit Barcelona. Also there is a big understand train station here. #catalonia #spain
Located in the heart of Barcelona, the Plaza Catalunya is connected to the old town and the extension. It is also the starting point for the citys main streets, Rambla and Gracia. The beautiful wide square is covered with green lawns, and there are beautiful stone statues of the goddess of peace, and the posture is peaceful and dignified: the fountain of flying beads jumping jade is diverse, just like the Crystal Palace. On weekends and holidays, the crowds are crowded and very lively. Various hawkers, selling colorful balloons, selling ice cream, and wandering entertainers, attract the attention of children and adults. Flocks of pigeons stroll in the squares and lawns and seem to enjoy life more than busy tourists.
Plaza Catalunya is the starting point for Las Ramblas and Passeig de Grcia, where many day trips are also gathered. There is an iconic building on the square, two staggered three bodies, and beautiful fountains and sculptures, as well as dense pigeons. Some people fed pigeons in the square, and the pigeons flew around and flew over, even to "step on the event" in order to compete for food. Occasionally, you can see the joint performer in the square.
There is a mother who feeds the pigeons with her daughter, and also gives the birds food to the tourists, so that the tourists can feed the pigeons together.
The interesting scene we saw in the square. A man carrying a suitcase, carrying a bag of bird food, then holding a selfie stick, wanted to capture the scene in which the pigeon interacted with himself. But as soon as he sprinkled the food, the pigeons rushed to forage and scared him. But he still kept a photo with the pigeons, quite funny.
Plaça de Catalunya is a large square in central Barcelona, Spain, that connects the Old Town District with the Eixample District. Surrounded by greenery, the La Deessa stone statue sits quietly on the square. Access is convenient, and the area is beautiful. Many restaurants, shops, bars, etc. are in the area, forming a complete city hub.
