The Royal Square in Barcelona (Plaça Reial in Catalan) is a public trapezoidal square located next to La Rambla, in the Gothic Quarter of the city. It was designed by architect Daniel Molina. Conceived as neoclassical from the mid nineteenth century on a city destroyed tissue, has the peculiarity that its style is subverted classic, minimally changing the spaces between pillars, to give the impression that the square is quadrangular. The architect also allowed the creation of passages to connect the streets of the medieval fabric that had been cut by the square.
Great place to meet for a drink and something to eat before heading out. Make sure you check out the street lamps designed by Gaudí!
Plaça Reial in the early evening - one of the hubs of Barcelona's nightlife!
Keep walking! The square looks nice, but it's full of overpriced tourist traps, pickpockets and beggars
A charming square lined with palm trees and a fountain, complete with bustling bars and restaurants! Worth a visit!
Magical place. Come here at night to check out the twinkly lights, the music and action, get a drink and head out to Barceloneta :)
If you go to Plaça Real pay atention to the 2 Gaudi Streetlights and don´t miss the opportunity of watching a jazz concert at Jamboree or an Indie one at Sidecar. Tarantos for flamenco!
