Barcelona outdoor activities - Plaça d'Espanya

Plaça d'Espanya is among those places you should visit when having Barcelona outdoor activities. Being built on the occasion of International Exhibition (1929) at the foot of Mountain Montjuïc , now it is among main squares of Barcelona.

It joins several important streets: Avinguda del Parallel, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Carrer de la Creu Coberta and Carrer de Tarragona and leads to the Palau Nacional through Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina where one of the most beautiful Catalan museums, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, is situated.

The fountain, placed in the middle of the square, was designed by Josep Maria Jujol, and the sculptures were created by Miquel Blay. Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí designed the buildings. The two Venetian towers, 154 ft each, are situated at the sides of the square. That's why you will never miss this place.
