Plaza España is a lovely plaza just out of the centre of town, where many of the main roads in Barcelona, such as Gran Via and Parallel intersect. It is also home to Barcelona’s old bull-fighting ring which is now nothing but a shell, albeit quite a beautiful one.
The main draw to Plaza España is the Palau Nacional which is the Museum of Catalan art, stands regally up on the side of Montjuïc. It’s stunning and there is never a better time to see it than when it is lit up at night with the Magic Fountain in front. More about the sights to see here.
